Because a number of out-of-date arm binaries were removed from unstable by
the ftpmasters; this means that there are *no* arm binaries for php4 in
unstable, so updating php4 in testing leaves all packages that depend on it
uninstallable on arm.

Now that xulrunner is built on arm, php4 is in needs-build for the
architecture, so one way or another this ought to clear up in the next few
