Run your PHP and see if it refuses to work, or if you encounter
any problems while running. 2.6.32 and 2.7.3 may be a version gap
that leads to nonfunctionality.

You could update your libxms2 port to get it to a newer version.
If you're using portupgrade (portinstall), use

	# pkgdb -aF

to fix package dependencies.
