Note that when the PHP package is installed, it says:
$NetBSD: MESSAGE,v 1.2 2002/01/11 22:27:05 jlam Exp $
To process PHP scripts, you will need a PHP-enabled HTTP server. You may
either configure the HTTP server to use PHP as a CGI program, or install a
PHP module for your HTTP server, e.g. ap-php4.
Some additional packages you may wish to install are:
php4-dba DBM databases access
php4-pcre Perl-compatible regular expressions
php4-posix PHP4 extension for POSIX-like functions
php4-session session ID support
php4-xml expat XML parser
