PHP5 + Apache 2.x : /usr/local/modules/ Undefined symbol "apr_table_set"

I have a FreeBSD 5.4 box running Apache 2.0.54 with PHP 5.0.5 installed. The Apache webserver was running fine without problems. PHP was already installed so I started to configure it (moving and editing php.ini, adding lines to httpd.conf, etc).

The file is located in /usr/local/modules/ and Apache has /usr/local as basedir. So I added the line "LoadModule php5_module modules/" to httpd.conf (along with "AddModule mod_php5.c" and the AddType lines).

I now have:
root@overkill# apachectl configtest
Syntax error on line 239 of /usr/local/etc/apache/httpd.conf:
Cannot load /usr/local/modules/ into server: /usr/local/modules/ Undefined symbol "apr_table_set"
I am stuck with this, a google search gave me only a few hits with some german sites which didn't help me much.

Where did you put your php.ini? When I ran make install, it automatically updated my http.conf file to reflect the php installation, i.e., I didn't have to add the LoadModule line.
I am assuming you already looked here

Hi Ephracis -

Did you find a solution for this problem? I'm having the same issue; Google has been of no help... Anyone?

Syntax error on line 232 of /etc/apache/httpd.conf:
Cannot load /usr/local/apache/modules/ into server: /usr/local/apache/modules/ undefined symbol: apr_table_set

No, sorry. I could not fix that problem. What I did was that I just installed a older version of Apache, since I know that Apache 2.x has been giving me headache before with different modules.
