This is not an error, this is portage telling you that php needs the 'sockets' USE flag enabled and this is required by cact. It is asking for your consent to pull dependencies you haven't explicitly requested, I have run in to portage asking me to do this several times.
You only need to do:

# echo '>=dev-lang/php-5.5.14:5.5 sockets' >> /etc/portage/package.use
and emerge -auvDN @world again.

PD: do as the output says too, and `man 5 portage` theres more about, package atoms and USE flags you should know, I'm sure you'll find some things nice you might want to use, portage is pretty awesome.
