Yes, there was a change this time around where 5.6 was *added* to the
tree as php56-* and php5-* was left at 5.4. In the past, it's been the
other way around and the expected change was to php5-* to 5.6 and add
php54-* to the tree.
It definitely caught me out on one machine where I updated php5 to php56
using pkg, then had to add the pgsql extension back in and `pkg install
php5-pgsql` tried to install the 5.4 extension.
