[php-maint] Bug#378354: install of php4-cli after php4-mysql does not allow cli php to use mysql

Package: php4-mysql
Severity: important

(all php4 packages involved here are 4.4.2-1.1)

I installed (via apt-get) php4 and php4-mysql. After realizing that I also
needed the cli version of php4, I installed php4-cli. However, PHP scripts
run from the cli could not make MySQL connections, reporting that the MySQL
'connect' function was not found.

Removing php4-mysql and reinstalling it cured the problem.
