I had problems compiling and installing pdflib5 as well, this seems to
be due to a conflict with diffrent versions of libtool installed.
Apparently there is a dependency for a older version of libtool for
pdflib, and a newer one if you do the mod_php4 install. However,
starting out with a clean portstree, cvsup to latest releases. Doing
compile and install of pdflib5 first, then mod_php4, it all seemed to
go fine. I'm sure you can change the setup for libtool so that pdflib5
uses the correct version of libtool too.
