first unpack your ports tree from the cdrom.
# cd /usr
# tar xvzf /mnt/cdrom/ports.tar.gz
(where /mnt/cdrom/ports.tar.gz is the correct path/filename for the
the set the variable CVS_RSH and CVSROOT. go to
http://www.openbsd.org/anoncvs.html and choose an anoncvs server near
# cd /usr/ports/www/php4
# cvs up -rOPENBSD_3_0 -Pd
wait for cvs to download the patches and everything else it need (
the first time you'll do that he will also download php sources)
now do a "make package" and wait for it to compile everything. then go
to /var/ports/packages/<arch>/All (where <arch> is your architecture,
e.g. i386). there you'll find all the packages you will compile. now
# pkg_delete php4-4.0.6etc..
# pkg_add php4-4.0.6etc
you have to supply to pkg_delete the correct name of the currently
installed php package (do "pkg_info" if you don't remember it) and to
pkg_add the name of the package you want to install
last note: if you do "make package" you'll build the "default" php
package. if you want to add support for e.g. mysql you need to do:
# FLAVOR=mysql make package
read the Makefile to find the other "flavors" for php packages
anyway... a question for all: the "fixed" version of php4 for openbsd
3.0-stable is 4.0.6p3?

if you want to check the version of a package simply cd to the correct
directory and do "make show VARNAME=PKGNAME" or just a "pkg_info" if the
package has been installed on your system. if you want to know the
version of a program that is part of openbsd (like ssh or apache) you
should usually do something like "ssh --version". read the man page to
find the correct option, since some programs want -v, other -V, some
don't recognize --version, etc.
