Thanks to Matthew, Dennis, Donald, Luc, & Shyam for their responses.

The consensus is that the built-in Apache and SunFreeware PHP are both 
not the most desired versions of said applications.  I had this 
combination working on another server but I guess that was by accident.  
Most everyone's suggestions was to use the implementation 
of these applications.  I would have downloaded the source of said 
applications before, but I have committed to as a sole 
source of open applications and it seems that was not a wise choice.

I have a Dell server running Solaris 10 11/06 with 15 or so sparse-root 
zones running Apache2 web stuff.  One zone has the desire to use PHP and 
I had it configured on the previous server but when we migrated to the 
Dell it behaved as I stated in my original email.

I downloaded the Blastwave pkg-get and installed the Blastwave apache2.2 
and PHP5.  After configuring the apache conf files, all the pages 
display properly.  I wished I had the time to figure out why the 
combination I was using previously wasn't working, but when you have 
paying customers that are down you are easily drawn to the light (easy fix).
