Well, that's certainly one way, but it's not The Way ;-)
Correct solution would be to install mod_php4 first and then install all
the necessary extensions via separate ports. For instance, to get MySQL
support in PHP you would install /usr/ports/databases/php4-mysql.
This way of installing extensions via ports was introduced when PHP
4.3.8 came out (and was mentioned in /usr/ports/UPDATING).
