  You need to have lang/php4 port installed first, because it conflicts
  with mod_php4*. Install www/mod_php4 after you have lang/php4 

  Also read pkg-message.mod in lang/php4 for instructions how to enable
  php support in Apache. After then, go for lang/php4-extensions to
  install whatever php module your heart desires.
