Unless it's changed quite recently (always possible), installing PHP5
from a package does not get you mod_php5 / libphp5.so, unlike PHP4.
As packages are built with default options, and as building the apache
module is not enabled by default (without/before running make config),
you now HAVE to use the port for PHP5, selecting the module in config.
I don't know why this became the default, assuming the majority of
php users are installing it for the apache module, but there it is.
