 php 4.4.1 has a bug which cause squirrelmail's sort function to misbehave:
 (endless loop):
 Pull in a patch from the php CVS repository to fix this, as suggested a
 squirrelmail mailing list:
 OK'd by Jaromir Dolecek, tested on apache-1 and apache-2 servers.
 Bump pkgrevision.
 Unfortunately this does NOT fix the problems!
 I tried to install php-4.4.1nb2 on a NetBSD/i386 3.0 server with apache-1.3.34 
 and it seems to work fine. However, on my other NetBSD/i386 3.0 server with 
 apache-2.0.55nb2 I still get core dump (now even with a simple PHP script used 
 at but also with squirrelmail).
 Here's what works with apache-2.0.55nb2 and what doesn't:
