php PortGroup documentation

I just wanted to create a Portfile for igbinary ( and figured to use the php5exension PortGroup. But since igbinary is no ordinary PECL, I couldn't just copypaste some other Portfile. Thus I'd have to get some info on how to use that php5extension PortGroup properly. But there's nothing in the Guide.

(Not urgent, just for testing at the moment)

Just in case it isn't clear, the portgroups are all in the ports tree under _resources/port1.0/group, so you can always read the source to find out how it works. Having documentation is better of course.

Yup, for now, read the portgroup's code and the code of the other portfiles that use it. If you have specific questions, please ask on macports-dev.

Summary: PortGroup php5extension documentationphp PortGroup documentation

The new php 1.1 portgroup has comments fully documenting every option. We may still want to copy this documentation into the Guide so that you don't have to open and read the portgroup file itself.

Changing to low priority because the portgroup has good documentation inside it (as comments), and because there are dozens of portfiles using the portgroup that you can look to as examples.
