Hello,

If a simple command like "php -v" (no script) results a seg fault then you
should follow Patrick's advice. Or try editing by hand
/usr/local/etc/php/extensions.ini and comment out one by one the extensions
mentioned in there.

If you are lucky you will find one or more offending extensions that you
don't need and leave them commented out on uninstall them. If not, you
would have to recompile/reinstall the offending extensions or portupgrade
php and all extensions. Latest php versions in ports tree (all branches:
5.4.x, 5.3.x, even 5.2.x) seem to have resolve this issue.

Regards,
Panagiotis
