Thanks, that confirms my knowledge. FreeBSD port I have mentioned in my 
reply to OP's post does work with PHP 7.2. It could be port maintainer 
who made necessary patching. Anyway, as an interim solution while 
choosing what to migrate to it is possible to download tarball of 
FreeBSD port, and installed what is in it. It shouldn't be much trouble: 
php 7.2 it depends on is php 7.2 whatever system it is installed on. 
Just thought.

Here is the link to FreeBSD port:


Here is reference to squirrelmail snapshots from the above:


I hope, this helps.
