FreeBSD now using an SVN snapshot

Adam Weinberger
Hello! I wanted to let you know that I've switched the FreeBSD port to
use an SVN snapshot rather than 1.4.22. PHP 5.4 and 5.5 compatibility
has been an oft-requested feature, and I figured that rather than
backporting just those patches, I'd bring in all the other hard work
you've done since June 2011!

FreeBSD requires that distfiles have known checksums, which means that I
cannot point the port at the latest daily snapshot. As a result, I've
mirrored the 2013/10/20 SVN snapshot onto the ftp.*.freebsd.org servers,
and I intend to cherry-pick future SVN snapshots for the same. I'm
pretty confident that I am not violating the letter or spirit of the GPL
in doing this but I felt like letting you know about this was the right
thing to do.

Thanks for all of the hard work you've done! I'm pleased to now share
more of it with the FreeBSD community!

# Adam

Thanks for letting us know.  Hopefully 1.4.23 will be getting an
official release in the near future.  Thanks for your patience.
