Any problems with php 4.3.8_2

I upgraded the php4 port on this 4.8-RELEASE box to 4.3.8_2.  I'm also 
using apache+mod_ssl-1.3.31+2.8.19.

When the lines

LoadModule php4_module        libexec/apache/
AddModule mod_php4.c

are uncommented, apache segfaults on startup.

We're not in a position to upgrade to a newer version of FreeBSD, given 
that this box is a thousand miles away from us and I, being a novice in 
many respects, am considered the unquestioned unix/bsd/etc expert in 
this company (sadly, I wear too many hats for my employers to become 
genuinely experienced in any one thing).

I read in a recent post that installing php5 seems to be something that 
you install *instead* of "mod_php5 and "php5-cli".  Does the same apply 
for php4?  I ask because I have "mod_php4-4.3.8_2,1", "php4-4.3.8_2" and 
"php4-cli-4.3.8_2" installed here (as listed in "/var/db/pkg", all 
installed from ports)

Has anything simlar to what I've described been reported with newer 
versions of php?  Might I have installed conflicting packages?  Any 
suggestions will be welcomed.  :)
