After the recent bump to 3.3.7 I looked at the ebuild again and noticed this:
24 May 2012; Tomáš Chvátal <email@example.com> geos-3.3.3.ebuild:
Depends on php[-threads] wrt bug#415023.
Gave an altered 3.3.7 ebuild a try again with php-5.4.8 (this time with -threads) and it worked - so the Changelog in 3.3.4 ('Fix support for PHP 5.4') might have actually said the truth, but our geos ebuilds still require php:5.3.
Attaching a patch to correct the php dependency.
