What Ive Got:
Gentoo install
manually downloaded and untarred egroupware (latest version, not in portage)
everything fine except when I run egroupware's check tool it complains that it doesnt have something called "PEAR" which it seems to want to sync with ical (the whole point of my wanting to install it, kinda mandatory feature)

Asside from not knowing what PEAR components I need to fill this requirement, when I try to emerge any of them I get this:

localhost dev-php # emerge -pv PEAR-HTML_Common

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies ...done!

This server already has some php stuff going with apache, I'd rather not uninstall mod_php since IIRC last time I tried to do this and use non-mod-php all the php stuff with apache got busted and nolonger worked.

Whats the "normal" thing to do about this?

I'm afraid you have to upgrade
Gentoo Weekly Newsletter: 17 April 2006 wrote:
Old-style PHP packages vanishing

The PHP Herd announces that the old-style PHP packages, which were unsupported and deprecated for months, are finally going away. After months of work, the team considers the new dev-lang/php package and the related dev-php[4,5]/ categories fully ready for production use, and encourage all users to upgrade. Helpful informations can be found at the PHP project's pages, along with a HOWTO regarding the migration to dev-lang/php. The old-style PHP packages (dev-php/php, dev-php/php-cgi, dev-php/mod_php, dev-php/PECL-*, and older dev-php/PEAR-* packages) will be package.masked on Wednesday, 19 April 2006, and removed from the Portage tree about a month later.

# emerge -pv mod_php

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:
