You'd also be surprised if the php5 package didn't include the Apache 
module, right?  That's why lots of people installed PHP in the first 
place, no?  Lots of people have been thus surprised, for years now.

Seeing Gary already has the module built, he could save it, remove then 
install the package and replace the module IF php was otherwise built 
with the same options, but the only way to get the module is build it.

In the almost singular case of php, I'd stick with building the port(s).

cheers, Ian
