DEFAULT_PHP_VER and r343784

r343784 added a WARNING to about DEFAULT_PHP_VER

+.if defined(DEFAULT_PHP_VER)
+WARNING+=      "DEFAULT_PHP_VER is defined, consider using DEFAULT_VERSIONS=php=${DEFAULT_PHP_VER} instead"

But the PHP ports themselves set DEFAULT_PHP_VER in Makefile.ext,
which all the sub-pieces (i.e., everything but lang/phpVER) include.
Which means that _every_ build of them spits out a warning and then
sits around twiddling its thumbs for a couple seconds.  Rather slows
down upgrades, not to mention yelling at the user about something not
in their control...
