Rainer and friends,

What I find interesting is that I have never used, to the best of my
knowledge, "port configure <portname> +foo +bar", etc. I only do an initial
"port fetch" and then I edited the php5 Portfile to make my additions and
then I ran port install +foo +bar ... so this is a wee bit confusing unless
even the fetch phase should be conducted *after* I've my the additions to
the php5 Portfile?

It seems one can learn something really new every day about MacPorts :-)
