Apache ports confusion.

Assumptions: I cvsup and portupgrade regularly. I uses 4.9-STABLE
FreeBSD. I do not want to run Apache2 or FreeBSD 5.x
I would like to run Apache on my FreeBSD machine. However, I am
confused as to which port(s) I actually should install. I warn you I
have some odd requirements. I do not wish to discuss why I want the
ports I want, I just would like to get some feedback as to which ports I
actually need to install : )
Ok, I need Apache with http and https support.
I also need Apache::ASP, and frontpage, php4, and mod_perl.
Sounds easy huh?
root at T-X /usr/ports/www # l | grep apache
drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel 512 Oct 30 12:03 apache-contrib
drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 512 Oct 30 12:03 apache-jserv
drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 512 Nov 7 10:49 apache13
drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 512 Oct 30 17:58 apache13+ipv6
drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 512 Nov 6 14:13 apache13-fp
drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 512 Nov 7 10:51 apache13-modssl
drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 512 Oct 30 21:29 apache13-ssl
drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 512 Oct 30 17:58 apache2
drwxr-xr-x 3 root wheel 512 Nov 5 12:45 apache21
Ok looking at that and my requirements I would guess I want to install
apache13-fp and apache13-ssl?
What about mod_frontpage and mod_ssl? What is the difference between
apache13-fp and mod_frontpage? What is the difference between
apache13-modssl, apache13-ssl and mod_ssl?
I am fairly sure that mod_php gets installed when I install php4.
I guess I will install mod_perl and the Apache::ASP modules last. They
worked the first time with no problems.
Anyway, I am very confused and I spent all week with trial and error but
all I get is a lot of mis-matched apache dependency errors when I try to
install conflicting packages.
Does anyone have some clues for me?
