At one time, ages ago I guess, there use to be an option to install the "Apache
PHP" module. I don't know why that was removed. Maybe it made things too easy.
Perhaps if they added the option back into the PHP meta port, or the
php-modules meta port, it would simplify things. Even if they did, they would
probably give it an obscure name.
