Hi all,

I had posted about this relatively recently, and didn't get any
response, so I thought I would try again.  I thought I had solved the
problem (I had a bunch of stuff in package.keywords that probably
didn't need to be there), so I left it alone.  It seems to have
resurfaced.

I went to do an `emerge -Duatv world` tonight, and I get dev-php/php
and dev-php/mod_php blocking.  So I uninstalled them, and thought that
I would re-install later (if necessary).  When I run it again, I get
dev-lang/php blocking dev-php/php-4.4.0-r4 (which is the one I just
unemerged).  So, same logical progression, I go to unemerge
dev-lang/php, and, lo and behold, it's not installed.

I vaguely remembered that the portage crew did some "tinkering" with
the portage tree when PHP5 came out, and it had something to do with
the whole dev-php/php-dev-lang/php issue.

So, my questions to the group are these:

1)  Why does `emerge -Duatv world` find a package (which blocks
another that it wants to update) that `emerge -CDatv world` does NOT find?

2)  How do I rectify this little "version discrepancy" fixed so that I
can get things updating normally again?

Any help would be great.  Thanks.
