The problem is, that although the php80 flavour does not depend on 
pecl-pdflib, the default flavour does, which means that the package will 
not be built as it you have to agree to pecl-pdflib's licence.

I know you don't need it for php80, but the package build infrastructure 
doesn't realise that.

Sorry-- you'll have to build it yourself until php80 is the current version.

@Larry, how about we change pdflib to be an off-by-default OPTION? 
That'd mean we'd have packages built at least.
