        From the "3-D" dos-style window that appears during php4 and
        mod_php4, both have mysql as defalt extensions.  (postgresql7
        is not a default, so I added it.)

        I'd like to have at least a few opensrc BBS/message board
        suites available for FBSD.  phpbb and phorum are two I've
        tried.  After a week of mis-tries (last May) I finally 
        got phpbb-2.0.4 working.  phpbb died inexplicably when I
        upgraded a week ago.  The trouble with phorum is that my
        browser display goes white after only the first two or three
        installation steps.  

        Can you send me a tarball of your port off-list?
