The point of the hint in question is to get an unclouded look at *what* is
still missing in order to get this batch in.

That isn't going to happen until after we confirm that the breakage of

Heh, any php4 package built only 63 days ago that *isn't* blocking on the
new php4 is RC-buggy... new bug, #334823.

Right, this one looks good; hint added.

A couple of the other hints you listed have already been run, or nearly so.
