Did you try installing php4-gd and php4-sablot? That's what
update_output says is having problems, at least on alpha. Those are
waiting on libgd and a newer sablotron respectively, both of which need
a number of other things rebuilt.
(Entire source packages go in at once. See 'apt-cache showsrc php4' for
the list of binary packages involved.)
