Yes, remembering to turn ON the Apache module during make config; it's
been turned off by default (for some bizarre reason) a couple of years.

Yes, but not the Apache module, which can only be installed from ports.

Which, because building the Apache module is not enabled by default, as
above, will only provide PHP CLI and CGI support, but not the desired
Apache module .. presumably the reason most people install PHP at all.

This will keep on bamboozling folks expecting pkg_add php5 (or php4) to
provide PHP support for Apache, until either default build options are
changed, or a specific "php5-apache" port (thus package) is created.

Exactly.  This will keep on coming up on -questions regularly.
