Many thanks for your contribution.

I intentionally didn't do that. Both mod_php and php-fcgi are full
functional without php (the port), but they don't install any php.ini.
In that case php use internal defaults, which are the same as the ones
in php.ini-dist, at least almost, see below. So, if we follow your
suggestion, we would have a different behaviour whether the port php
is installed or not.
Please note, installing mod_php and php-mysql gives you exact the same
as with the "old" mod_php package, which installs php.ini-dist as
> echo 'extension_dir = "/usr/lib/php/extensions"' >> /etc/php/conf.d/local_settings.ini
IMO, the extension_dir default is a bug, but I'd fix that with a sed
line in the Pkgfile.
Thanks and best regards
BTW, seems that the new php stuff is far more flexible now, but more
complicated to understand how it works as well. Might be helpful to
have a wiki page with some tips? Volunteers?
