Having troubles with mod_php and expat

Hello there,

Forgive me for this naive problem, but I have been scouring the archives 
and the net for some resonance that may point to a solution without success:

I recently upgraded my FreeBSD 5.1 system to a FreeBSD 5.4 system. 
Along the way I used the port system to upgrade Perl (5.8.7), mod_perl 
(mod_perl2-2.0.1,2), PHP (4.4.0), mod_php (mod_php4-4.4.0,1), Apache 
(apache-2.0.54_4), expat (1.95.8_3), etc.

Both Perl and PHP are loaded in httpd.conf as modules

All of this was an effort to install the SugarCRM port, but this is 

The problem is quite simple...

 From php, I am unable to access any of the XML functions.  So the 
following script:

<head><title>php test</title></head>
<?phpinfo() ?>
if (function_exists('xml_parser_create')) {
         echo '<b>OK</b>';
else {
         echo '<b>Not Available</b>';

Yields "Not Available".  I only offer this snippet since this is the 
test that SugarCRM tries on install and fails on.

Your guidance would be gratefully accepted.

Many thanks.
