PHP, which stands for "PHP: Hypertext Preprocessor" is a widely-used Open
Source general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for
Web development and can be embedded into HTML.  Its syntax draws upon C,
Java, and Perl, and is easy to learn.  The main goal of the language is to
allow web developers to write dynamically generated webpages quickly, but
you can do much more with PHP.

Don't use extension.ini any more, and have each extension install in its
file, so the order remains the same.

Every PHP (or Zend) extension now installs its own .ini file in
/usr/local/etc/php.  A PHP extension will be automatically activated
when installed.  The order into which extensions are loaded is
automatically guessed.  In some very rare cases, the guess will be
wrong, and PHP_MOD_PRIO will need to be set.  Refer to the USES=php
section of the Porter's Handbook for more information.

Convert ports touching etc/php/extensions.ini manually, or telling the
OP to do it.

And finally, bump PORTREVISION for all php extensions.
