That is a typo, and the complete path in there is wrong as well - apache2 
modules go into /usr/local/libexec/apache2 by default.

I have no idea what exactly you downloaded, but I have the suspicion it was 
not a binary package. Did you extract the archive yourself and did configure, 
make, make install in the dir you got? If so, you should go there again and 
do make uninstall.

The actual binary package of apache2 for FreeBSD 5.4-RELEASE is

You can install it with pkg_add. You can also just do pkg_add -r apache2 and 
FreeBSD will automatically fetch and install a binary package of apache2 for 
you. Remember to read the instructions the package displays after
