not on system after pkg_add -r php5

I have been trying to sort this out since yesterday and it is driving me mad!  I am new to FreeBSD 7 having come from a Linux/Solaris 8/OpenVMS background.  I am trying to build a web and mail server, and have had good success untill I needed php5 to work with apache2.  

I am using the pkg_add for all my software and have so far configured dovcote, postfix & mysql5 no problem.  What I am finding is that after I have installed php5 via the pkg_add -r php5 comand, created the php.ini file and changes, added the AddType lines to httpd.conf, I cant add the LoadModule as does not exist on the system?  I have had a look to see if I need to install a seperate but I can't find one.

If anyone can point me in the right direction I would be grateful.  I hasten to add that I am aware apache & php can be built using ports, but I have read not to mix ports and packages and having installed and configured the majority of my server via packages I am loathed to start again!!
