ahhh, the mystery is solved.

the upgrade to php5 @5.2.10 moved the php.ini file to /opt/local/etc/ 
the deactivate didn't touch anything
the activate php5 @5.2.6 didn't do anything to php.ini either, since  
there now is no php.ini in /opt/local/etc

hmmm, maybe the "right" thing for php5 @5.2.10 to do is copy the  
php.ini file as opposed to moving it?

my brain hurts less now.
