No, that's the weird part; pkg_add 'php<5' (w/o .tgz) adds php-4.4.1nb2
(sorry if I forgot to say that in the original msg).

Not so important at the moment; the main issue is pkg_add behaves
differently depending on .tgz being present or absent. Secondary issue
is defaults to adding .tgz when it invokes pkg_add through
real-su-bin-install, causing a line like DEPENDS+= php<5:../../www/php4
to install 5.0.5 instead, but that's only a consequence of the main issue.
