Best I can figure is that this package was compiled without the options to include apache support. -or- there is another package that adds support for apache 2.2.3

I dont know whether or not the php-package are built with the apache module but 
have you configured your apache correctly? have you added
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps

to your apache conf?

My suggestion would be to compile the packages from the ports-collection to make 
sure the module is compiled and then make sure that the webserver is configured 

You can read about the ports collection and how to use it here:
