That will be done regardless on 2007-12-31.

By the looks of it there are only a handful of packages that are marked
as PHP4 only:

databases/php-filepro/Makefile:PHP_VERSIONS_ACCEPTED=   4
mail/roundcube/        4
net/php-yp/Makefile:PHP_VERSIONS_ACCEPTED=      	4
textproc/php4-domxml/Makefile:PHP_VERSIONS_ACCEPTED=    4
textproc/php4-xslt/Makefile:PHP_VERSIONS_ACCEPTED=      4
www/apc-gui/Makefile:PHP_VERSIONS_ACCEPTED= 		4
www/php-FastTemplate/Makefile:PHP_VERSIONS_ACCEPTED=    4
www/php4-apc/Makefile:PHP_VERSIONS_ACCEPTED=  		4

A number of these would go if the php4 package does anyway (e.g.
php4-domxml, php4-xslt and php4-apc).  There are also other initiatives
to get people to migrate to PHP5 as well:

This project is suggesting a deadline of 5th Feb 2008 and getting
developers of PHP based applications to sign up to it.
