I'm not being rude. I just pointed that I'm using cgi and cli (not mod 
as he refer). I've read UPDATING
and if you're talking about 2004 when port is split to php-extension 
etc. I think this is not the case.


.if ${PHP_SAPI} == "cgi" || ${PHP_SAPI} == "mod"

 From Makefile you can see that if I use cgi then cli is disabled. If 
you manualy build from source I see no limitation of using both of them.

The main problem I see it that in both cases bsd install script copy cli 
and cgi file as php. Also with php.ini. I would be better to install
php-cli or just php and for cgi php-cgi. And also install separate 
php.ini files.

I hope port maintainer can make this changes because I'm not so good 
about port scripting.

For the moment I just make cgi version and copy it manually. But I think 
with small changes this could be done automatically.
