	 Melvyn Sopacua's advice resolved this php4 snafu.  lang/php4
	 comes first, mod_php4 falls into place cleanly.  The problem
	 now (with BBS software not in the ports tree) is that my
	 mysql4 and postgresql7 are not visible ... .

	 The fudforum2/install.php script displays::

   FUDforum can utilize either MySQL or PosgreSQL database to store it's
   data, unfortunately, your PHP does not have support for either one.
   Please install or load the appropriate database extension and then
   re-run the install script.

	Similar things happen with phorum-3.4.4.
	I've set up database hooks in both databases, but because
	the screen goes unpredictably blank I'm evidently messing
	up with my db hooks.
