Installing PHP4 from ports fail

Hello all,

I am trying to install mysql323, apache13 and php4 on 4.4 Release. So 
far I have  successfully installed mysql and apache, with php it is a 
different story.

I have two issues. I have a question about apache, and I would like some 
help getting php installed on my machine.

I installed apache13-server. Will this installation allow me to use ssl?

When I try to install php the installation fail repeatedly at this point.

-Wl,-rpath -Wl,/usr/local/lib ../lib/libbison.a
Making all in doc
makeinfo --no-split   -I .  `test -f 'bison.texinfo' || echo 
'./'`bison.texinfo -o
bison.texinfo:37: Unknown command `copying'.
bison.texinfo:58: Unmatched `@end'.
bison.texinfo:93: Unknown command `insertcopying'.
makeinfo: Removing output file `' due to errors; use --force 
to preserve.
*** Error code 2

*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/devel/bison/work/bison-1.75.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/devel/bison.

After the installation failed I did the following:
  make clean  /usr/ports/lang/php4
cd /usr/ports/devel/bison
make clean

The bison installation fails repeatedly at the same place and with the 
same error messages as the php installation.

If someone could help me, offer any suggestions or pointers I would 
appreciate it.
