    dev-lang/php: new revisions with updated oracle dependencies.
    For a while, the dev-db/oracle-instantclient-basic package has been an
    "alias" for dev-db/oracle-instantclient[sdk], to ease migration to the
    latter. This commit adds revisions for the three supported PHP slots
    to finally update the dependency. I can't really test the Oracle
    client, but this should be at least as good as it was, given that
    oracle-instantclient-basic was just pulling in oracle-instantclient
    I've also added a REQUIRED_USE blocker for LDAP when building PHP with
    Oracle support. There are several reports that the instant client
    brings its own LDAP library, and that linking it against another one
    causes crashes. Again, who knows. Better safe than sorry?
