That PBI / package was originally for PC-BSD 1.2 if I remember, and I 
have it on my list to recreate it here soon for 7.x. However, the new 
AMP stack, will instead work with "The Warden", which means you will be 
able to install it into "Warden" managed Jails with just a few clicks. 
This provides extra layers of security, and also will give you the 
advantage of being able to run multiple AMP stacks on the same system :)

If you want to get a head start on it though, go ahead and grab a copy 
of "The Warden" from here:


Then you'll just need to make sure you have the ports tree installed, 
and then use the warden to create a new jail. Once the jail is running, 
you can simply ssh into it, and run "make install" in 
/usr/ports/www/apache22 or whichever ports you want to add, just as you 
would on a FreeBSD system.
