ive been scratching my head on this one for a few days too.  i have a box at 
home, that is running 6.2-PRERELEASE.  when i try to install the lang/php5 
port, i get:

[root at athena /usr/ports/lang/php5]# make install clean    
===>  php5-5.1.6_1 has known vulnerabilities:
=> php -- open_basedir Race Condition Vulnerability.
=> Please update your ports tree and try again.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/lang/php5.

however, my server is running the same port, with no issue whatsoever.

[root at zeus /etc/mail]# pkg_info | grep php5
(and many extensions too)

perplexing that one box could have it, while another one (using the same 
updated ports tree), refuses it.  could be related to the code branch im 
following on my workstaion versus my server?
