Uhg, yeah, but this is because the way your operating system distro
vendor has packaged these softwares.
libapache2-mod-php5 is not an official package name

Try getting httpd and php sources and build them, its why I wont touch
things like that from certain distros, too much butchering goes on.  php
has a helpful mailing list for php related questions, but AFAIK, php is
thread safe, but not all modules might be, again, a question for them as
its not httpd related.

httpd -l  and look to see whats there

I am using only 2.4 now, event (similar, but advanced to, worker) is now
the default MPM, if you want prefork compile with   --with-mpm=prefork
