Have you run revdep-rebuild? It searches all of the .so files, looking
for dependencies broken by an upgrade, then rebuilds the packages with
Is "dev-php/php" in your world file (/var/lib/portage/world)? If
"emerge -e world" didn't rebuild it, there's a good chance PHP is not

Use "emerge -p --depclean" to find out what packages would be skipped by
"emerge -e world". On a clean system, "emerge -p --depclean" should
list no extraneous packages, but note that "emerge --depclean" is often
too zealous about uninstalling packages, so be careful. Try "emerge -p
--depclean | grep -i php" in particular.

automatically keeps a record of changes.
