Problems with php-4

Just finished upgrading to 6, so I rebuilt all my ports to use the new
libraries with portupgrade.  All built fine except for two:

** Listing the failed packages (*:skipped / !:failed) 
         ! devel/pear-PEAR (pear-PEAR-1.3.5_1)   (unknown build error) 
         * databases/pear-DB (pear-DB-1.7.6,1) 
 --->  Packages processed: 171 done, 0 ignored, 1 skipped and 1 failed

php4-DB depends on PEAR, so I fix PEAR, and I fix the other one...I hope.

Anyway, when I try to rebuild php4-PEAR this is the error I get:

===>    Verifying install for pear in /usr/ports/devel/php4-pear 
 This port requires the CLI or the CGI version of PHP, but you have 
 already installed a conflicting PHP port without them. 
 *** Error code 1 
 Stop in /usr/ports/devel/php4-pear. 
 *** Error code 1 
 Stop in /usr/ports/archivers/pear-Archive_Tar. 
 *** Error code 1 

I have mod_php4 installed which is incomptaible with php4-cli / how can I get around this?
