PHP4 removed from the Portage tree
All work on PHP4 was been discontinued by upstream on August 8. No more security or bug fixes will be released. PHP4 has already been hardmasked in the Portage tree since October 2007 (for security reasons), and now it has finally been removed from the tree.
If possible, you should upgrade to PHP5, which is still supported with bug and security fixes.
