Have a clean install of 8.0 and trying to do cvs make install of port 
php5 just to turn on apache module. The php5 make install is complaining 
that autoconf262, pkg-config and libxml2 as non-existent -- dependency 
list incomplete. I installed these as packages and they show up in 
Only thing i can think of is the php5 make file is looking for the port 
make files of these so call non-existent ports to check that dependent 
is there when it should be checking the pkg-db to check if dependent is 

Question is how do I force the port make install of php5 to accept the 
package versions of the dependents so the compile will start?
