APACHE_MODULE pulls in apache as dep, while CGI and CLI do not. There is not
much difference in performance with the CGI version and mod_fcgid, the major
difference with the module is the ease of site/directory specific
configuration of php through php_value and php_flag directives.
A slave port is easily created with one Makefile, as below.
# New ports collection makefile for: php5-module

CATEGORIES= local lang
# Set some options, though the config dialog is still set. This build is

# Jails can't use SUHOSIN
