It seems to me that a real issue here is, would a successful php4 build 
on arm even be useful?  Given how long arm autobuilders take to build 
such things, I have to wonder whether there are arm machines out there 
that are powerful enough to make use of the software in question.  If 
not, perhaps arch: !arm is the solution.

BTW, question for the arm people: the last time a build was actually 
attempted for php4, it failed due to a toolchain error.  Are there known 
issues on arm with the -O2 that php4 is using, or is there simply no 
easy fix for this?
