<snoffle> Hah! I think I suffered a premature-something-or-other 'cos
before I read this response, I went to
(I think) /usr/ports/lang and tried to shoehorn php3 into the box. It
failed with all kinds of different build errors. Probably due to me
thinking I should add *everything* on the popup list to the build. It
got indigestion and blew up. Then *I* got indigestion when (for a while)
*nothing* would build. After logging off that session however, I was
able to build stuff later on when relogged in. <muse> wonder why that

When I get home from work, I'll happily experiment using your
recommendation above. Many thanks for the tips and guidlines yet again.
Time for a bacon sandwich now...oh wait, there's yet more goodies
