A small gotcha for me. My phpMyAdmin stopped working. Says I needed  
mcrypt which I didn't install (mostly to just see what happens).

In the phpmyadmin port there is a dependency on php5 that looks like  

depends_run         path:lib/${mysql}:${mysql} \

How does that work if something needs php5-mcrypt? Just make the  
dependency be on php5-mcrypt which would obviously depend on php5?

Just curious.

I installed php5-mcrypt, my phpMyAdmin (not from MacPorts) works fine
