I've recently upgraded to netbsd 2.0.2 and started to install some software I hadn't been using
much before (such as apache php and mysql) as you might know some extra configure args needs to be
specified in order to make all work together nice so I've been reading tru and understood that configure args
specified from /etc/mk.conf must follow after 'PKG_OPTIONS.<pkg_name>=' something like mine:

PKG_OPTIONS.ap-php="--with-apxs2=/usr/pkg/sbin/apxs \
        --with-mysql \
        --enable-force-cgi-redirect \
        --disable-cgi \
        --with-zlib \
        --with-gettext \

this however is not what configure is being run with, would anyone please tell me if you had any
luck specifying configure args on mk.conk? if so please write how cause it's been like 3rd package
I'm trying to customize and no luck what so ever, I do however get message during compilation such

The following variables will affect the build process of this package,
ap-php-4.3.11.  Their current value is shown below:

        * PKG_APACHE = apache13

You may want to abort the process now with CTRL-C and change their value
before continuing.  Be sure to run `/usr/bin/make clean' after
the changes.

The supported build options for this package are:


You can select which build options to use by setting the following
variables.  Their current value is shown:

        PKG_OPTIONS.ap-php = --with-apxs2=/usr/pkg/sbin/apxs --with-mysql
--enable-force-cgi-redirect --disable-cgi --with-zlib --with-gettext --with-gdbm

but when I check my php configuration using
#php -r 'phpinfo();'

PHP Version => 4.3.11

System => NetBSD wally 2.0.2 NetBSD 2.0.2 (GENERIC) #0: Tue Mar 22 16:19:08 UTC 2005
Build Date => Mar 22 2005 23:49:11
Configure Command =>  './configure' '--without-mysql' '--without-iconv' '--disable-posix'
'--with-config-file-path=/usr/pkg/etc' '--with-exec-dir=/usr/pkg/libexec/php4'
'--with-regex=system' '--enable-discard-path' '--enable-force-cgi-redirect'
'--enable-memory-limit' '--enable-track-vars' '--host=powerpc--netbsd' '--prefix=/usr/pkg'

I clearly something different.
any ideas on that?
thanks for your help.
