Please don't desert us! :) I only hadn't responded because I wasn't  
familiar with dbase and had not yet had time to familiarize myself.  
Please let me know if the patch from Chris works and I'll be happy to  
incorporate it into the php5 portfile.

BTW, his patching instructions should have read...

sudo patch `port file php5` php5-dbase.patch
