The original poster was installing using binary packages. (We can assume
that package users may not know pkgsrc build system or have no interest or
time in using pkgsrc to build from source.)

Also, if I recall correctly, someone else recently used it and ended up
with Apache 1 be default. I know there is a option to set, but Apache 2 is
the more official now.

I may be overlooking something, but the PKGNAME is ap-php-${PHP_BASE_VERS}
(for example, ap-php-4.3.11) which doesn't indicate the "apache version".
