Yes, it's now put in automake and libtool before trying gd2 ...

and it's installed php5 ... YEAH !!!

Copied my old db's and htdocs and .conf's etc etc etc
sudo cp -Rfp /opt_old/local/var/db/mysql5/* /opt/local/var/db/mysql5/
sudo cp -Rfp /opt_old/local/apache2/htdocs/* /opt/local/apache2/htdocs/

and it looks like it's all up and running ... even after shutdown & 
restarts of the laptop.

The only thing I don't now see in "port installed" is db44 ... that 
was there as well as db46 ... but may have been some legacy item 
that's been superceded, but remained installed and active after the 
(many) port sync and port upgrade outdated sessions.
