I use pkg_comp with NetBSD 4.0 release sets installed (I doubt
any of that matters here) - I use libkver to simulate NetBSD 4.0
for uname, and X11_TYPE=modular instead of the x* sets
Again, I dount any of that really matters - except that when
the build starts, there is nothing related to PHP installed
(the pkg_comp sandbox is essentially empty) and there is
nothing related to PHP or PHP versions in mk.conf (everything
is just whatever comes in pkgsrc by default).
In that environment, (and with no binary package for php53-gd
available - if there was one it would probably have been
installed and all would have been OK) attempt to build
www/gallery (or www/gallery2 - it exhibits the same problem).
If I were to install php53, or set the default PHP version,
or just had a binary package for the dependency available,
this problem would probably have remained hidden.
?? Somehow the desired version of PHP needs to be passed
through the build machinery to PHP packages, when a package
needs a specific version - simply going to the php package
directory and saying "build" isn't going to do it, that will
just vuild the default version, not the version that is needed.

probably, need same trick done in lang/python/pyversion.mk for PYTHON_VERSION_REQD.

I looked at it.
I think that this problem was derived by possible values for:
When I imported lang/php53, these variables take: 5 or 53.
5 php 5.2.x
53 php 5.3.x
Next, jdolecek@, MAINTAINER of php package changes meaning:
5 php 5.2.x or php 5.3.x
52 php 5.2.x
53 php 5.3.x
It is logically good and consistent rather than making "5" means "52"
when I imported.
But, when recursive build is needed, lang/php/phpversion.mk is forced
to set PHP_VERSION_REQD which is required to specify *real* PHP's
# force the selected PHP version for recursive builds
These are my analysis of present state and it could be fixed by
possible value to:
5 php 5.2.x
53 php 5.3.x
52 php 5.2.x
53 php 5.3.x
Avoid to use value which means "php 5.2.x or php 5.3.x" or introduce
new variable which set PHP_VERSION_REQD instead of PKG_PHP_VERSION
Finally, since this decision should be done by MAINTAINER, this PR
should be taken by jdolecek@. :-)

PHP's framework had been changed from days of this PR.
Do you still have the problem? (And NetBSD 4.0 is EOL for now.)

I haven't tried to build it in a very long time, so I have no idea.
I guess I could try again - but so could anyone else, the problem was
blatant enough (and I think, well understood enough) that if it is
thought to have been fixed, it most probably has been.
Aside: that NetBSD 4 is EOL is irrelevant - NetBSD 4 had nothing at all
to do with the issue in this PR, it was 100% a pkgsrc related problem.
Which NetBSD (or other OS) version was the host for pkgsrc would have
made no difference whatever - NetBSD 4.0 just happened to be what I
was using (3+ years ago...) when I noticed the problem, so was mentioned
just on the off chance that it might be relevant (just including all
possible environment info).

This is a general problem with multiversion packages; if you are building
package X and this triggers a build of package Y, Y is a multiversion package,
and for some reason the version you need is not the default version, it will
build the default version and then die as described.
Which combination of packages this happens with depends on the accepted
versions settings, your setting of the default version, and so on, all of
which change over time. But nothing's ever been done about the underlying

I belive this problem has gone by changing of values of those variables
Since single "5" dose not mean "Any PHP 5.x" any more, so this inconsistent
dependecy problem should not happen now (really, 4 years ago).
