mod_php56 package does not add php56 as dependence

As opposite to my past install, I suprisingly discovered that mod_php5x install does no more install it's main dependence : package php5x...
Now, you have to manually add it !

It makes me spend a quite big amount of time before figure this out, it's so highly illogical 8-(

Code:
# pkg install mod_php56

And obviously it does not work as is.

pkg install php56

Now it will work (apache restart needed).
Hope this help

Maybe the "dependence" word I use is wrong, maybe I should have say "Requirement" ?

A mod_php56 install I made a few months ago (as other versions in older installs in the past) has installed automatically php56 when installing mod_php56... Does something changed, is it wanted and why ?

I'm quite sure it never did.

Really ? I'm sure it did (i'm talking of binary packages, not ports) :

I did not find the log of my install of this mod_php56 package some months ago,
but here is an extract from the log from my ssh client software (Penguinet/windows),
it's part of a huge log from a brand new freebsd box install, back in June 2016 :

php70 was installed automatically when mod_php70 is installed, like it used to be with mod_php5x,
and today install is not the same.

I'm quite sure it has never pulled in lang/php56 or 7.0. But I double checked it anyway, this is on a brand new, fresh installed VM:

Same thing with latest instead of quarterly. There's no "reason" for it, the port simply doesn't have it listed as a dependency (or requirement, but that boils down to the same thing really). The reason appears quite simple, it would depend on (or require) itself. Which would result in a nice circular dependency when you try to build it ;)

I'm not sure why it does for you but it never pulled in PHP itself for me. Perhaps it's due to something else you installed before installing www/mod_php70?
