phpMyAdmin broken with PHP 5.2.8?

After upgrading today to php 5.2.8, phpmyadmin gave nothing but blank pages. I tried make deinstall/make install clean, but I get a stop error:

===>    Verifying install for /usr/local/lib/php/20060613/ in /usr/ports/devel/php5-spl
===>  Building for php5-spl-5.2.8
cd: can't cd to /usr/ports/devel/php5-spl/work/php-5.2.8/ext/spl
*** Error code 2

Stop in /usr/ports/devel/php5-spl.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/databases/phpmyadmin.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/databases/phpmyadmin.
It appears the upgrade to php 5.2.8 removed the php5-spl port. Is spl now integrated into the core PHP base, like cpre?
Should I just wait a few days and see if phpmyadmin is updated to reflect the new PHP5 changes? What about scarecrow's brain?
rm -rf /usr/ports/devel/php5-spl
cd /usr/ports/databases/phpmyadmin && make install clean

problem fixed.:)
I am having a similar problem...phpmyadmin was working fine before...then I updated png, tiff, mDNSResponder etc. and now I get blank pages...I did portsnap fetch update today, deinstalled the phpmyadmin port, reinstalled (no errors)...and still just get a blank page in the root or in /setup/ ...
