FreeBSD9 + PHP

I appreciate everyone's input on this matter and the bottom line is:

mod_php and/or php-fpm should be created as a _separate_package_

for users who have no need for it, should _NOT_ install it in fact if
this package exists or not it shouldn't even concern you (since you
not using it)
for users who finds it useful then can go ahead and install it using pkg_add

I don't understand why so much fuss about that at the first place? a
lot of other distributions are doing that way and it's pretty much
"win win" for everyone, at least I didn't see anyone complaining

I posted this message to ports@ and to maintenances for these
packages, hopefully they'll do as time permits.
