You may try to experiement with commenting out (using ;) one line at a time
in /usr/local/etc/php/extensions.ini and see whether you can find the
offending extension by starting Apache till you "get it up". I have had
serious problems with php-mysql (mysql5) and php-imap (which I have never
been able to get to work) myself.

My system: FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE, Apache/2.0.58, PHP 5.1.4
