This is correct for FreeBSD also ... you build a 'central php' and add 
modules as seperate ports that are enabled thorugh an extensions.ini file 

Same thing happens with the various 'components' of postgresql, each are 
built/installed as seperate packages, where if the appropriate headers are 
already installed on teh machine, the core distribution doesn't have to be 
re-downloaded/extracted ...
