[root at kanga ports]# cd /usr/ports/mail/squirrelmail-devel
[root at kanga squirrelmail-devel]# ls
Makefile        distinfo        files/          pkg-descr       pkg-plist
[root at kanga squirrelmail-devel]# make install distclean
Use WITH_LDAP to ensure PHP LDAP support is installed
Use WITH_DATABASE to ensure PEAR framework for database support is installed
   (note that this does not install the database specific PEAR
support, e.g. MySQL)

This port requires the Apache Module or the CGI version of PHP, but you have
already installed a PHP port without them.
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/mail/squirrelmail-devel.

Now, I do have PHP with apache support installed, it's running my blog.

[root at kanga squirrelmail-devel]# pkg_info | grep php
php4-4.4.2_1        PHP Scripting Language (Apache Module and CLI)
php4-ctype-4.4.1    The ctype shared extension for php
php4-extensions-1.0 A "meta-port" to install PHP extensions
php4-mysql-4.4.1    The mysql shared extension for php
php4-overload-4.4.1 The overload shared extension for php
php4-pcre-4.4.1     The pcre shared extension for php
php4-posix-4.4.1    The posix shared extension for php
php4-session-4.4.1  The session shared extension for php
php4-tokenizer-4.4.1 The tokenizer shared extension for php
php4-xml-4.4.1      The xml shared extension for php
php4-zlib-4.4.1     The zlib shared extension for php

So, this would seem to be in error.
