ports vs packages

Thank you so much for this wonderful feedback!

One of the things I'm seeing is that unfortunately packages are
somewhat limited vs ports...

For example:

I'm trying to get Apache httpd + PHP to work, after pkg_add -r php5,
php5 doesn't have libphp5.so that links Apache and PHP together... so
unless I'm doing something entirely wrong I basically must use ports
and nothing else to get the functionality i need...
