PHP in MacPorts was not made aware of separately-loadable extension files until php5 @5.3.0. I never bothered to go back and do the same for php4 because PHP 4 was end-of-lifed some time ago.

Perhaps I can add a pdflib variant to the php4 port for you. But you really should upgrade to php5.

Then again, we don't have a php5-pdflib port either. I suppose that should be created first.
