IMHO, it's not so necessary to made 7th line as main for a now. php 5.6 is
clean enough for production purposes.

And as you know, there is some problems with compiling php7 on x86 alpine
build machines.
I have no problem to compile it on my x86, So I have some difficulties with
I need to add x86 to arch before made some new fix or addon and then I need
to remove x86 before commit.
