is it a lost cause to: 

/usr/ports/lang/php4-extensions
make config (choose pgsql support)
apache restart
but still no support for postgres in php

perhaps there is some extra configuration I am missing

I changed my php.ini to incudle pgsql.so
http.config is set up to add the php module

users pages run php, but not the postgres API

my method for installing everything, in short, was:
make install apache13 port
make install mod_php4 port
(posgres already there)
apache rc script restart
(recently)
make config php4-extensions
make install php4-extensions
apache rc script restart
still no pg api ;(

thanks for any help
R.
