Zafer, you are still confusing two issues here.
1) Does the pkgsrc and/or pkg_add framework allow a binary package of
ap-php4 to depend on apache-2.*?
2) Are there any pre-built binary packages on ftp.netbsd.org that were
created in such a way that the binary package of ap-php4 depends on
The answer to (1) is: Yes, but you have to build the binary packages
with non-default options. You are free to do that yourself, and
distribute your own binary packages to multiple machines under your
control. Then when you pkg_add your own special version of the ap-php4
binary package, it will install apache-2.* as a dependency.
The answer to (2) is: No, the binary packages on ftp.netbsd.org were all
built with default options, and that implies apache-1.3.*.
So, it is possible, but somebody else did not do it for you. There's no
contradiction in that.
