interspersed and cut off

Hi Pete,

There are some problems with the user messages in the  php5 port.  It
occurrs when you specify neither the apache nor the apache2 variant.  This
is a perfectly legitimate use of php, but did you intend to install it
without Apache support?

I attached a patch to the php5 port for the maintainer to evaluate that I
think straightens out the messages.  If you did intend to install Apache
support, you must reinstall the port and specify a variant.  Either
+apache or +apache2.  And until the user message fixes get applied to the
port, here are instructions you may use:
