i'm curious how you found yourself in this position.  currently in etch
there is a php4-pear package which depends on php-pear plus all of the
modules that used to be contained by php4-pear (php-db, etc).  btw,
php-log was never part of php4-pear, and was a seperate package

did you remove the php4-pear package before upgrading?  i just tested a
sarge->etch upgrade and verified that the new packages are brought in

php-log was not installed, but php4-pear-log remains installed since
nothing conflicts with it.  you should probably file a seperate bug
report against this to the php-log package, which is maintained by
someone outside the debian php maintainers group. in the bug report you
should state that it hould sprovide a transitional php4-pear-log package
that depends on php-log.
