Speaking as the port maintainer: what's the problem with the port? As
far as I can tell from looking back at postings you've made in this
list, you've actually got a problem with the security/php4-openssl
port. Unfortunately you need to have php4-openssl installed as a
dependency of phpMyAdmin.
The error mesage you're getting about:
'Dependency warning: used OpenSSL version contains known
vulnerabilities. Please update or define either WITH_OPENSSL_BASE
is the ports system trying to stop you shooting yourself in the foot
by installing software that uses a version of OpenSSL with known
security vulnerabilities. Details are given here, as well as
instructions on how to fix that specific problem:
Note however that there are other fixes available for other
vulnerabilities in 5.2.1-RELEASE: the latest is 5.2.1-RELEASE-p10.
Recommended solution would be to cvsup(1) the latest sources from the
RELENG_5_2 branch and do a complete buildworld cycle as described in
the Handbook. However, as a complete beginner, you might find that
using the binary patches supplied via FreeBSD Update suits you better:
After that, the phpMyAdmin port should install smoothly.
 Well, you do at the moment. There's a maintainer update waiting
to go in once the ports freeze for 5.3-RELEASE is lifted, which will
make most of those dependencies optional. See
