it's not contradictory.  when i build my own binary packages with the
appropriate options (in mk.conf), i can have it.

it's very easy to say "just build a package for ap2 as well" but to do
so such a feature needs to be added to the bulk-build framework.  your
code is welcome.

to say "majority may use apache2 nowadays" is a very broad
generalisation.  my experience says the opposite.  there were (are?)
numerous notorious issues with PHP when used with apache2.  i don't know
whether they are all resolved already but it was so unreliable that
nobody with common sense would use it on a production system.  and
that's not a NetBSD-specific issue.
