Hmm, that is not an official Slackware package.  That seems to be some 
apache-2+php package somebody rolled up.  You'll do just fine though with 
the standard Slackware packages:

apache-1.3.33-i486-1  (actually, there's a patch called 

php-4.4.0-i486-4 (again, there's an upgrade called php-4.4.2-i486-3)

You can also use php5 from the "testing" packages, php-5.0.5-i486-1, but I 
would probably just stick with the release versions.

As for libt1.so.5, it's in package t1lib-5.1.0-i486-1.

If I were you I would remove your apache-2 package and install the ones I 
mentioned.  If you don't have CD's handy you can get the packages from any 
Slackware mirror.

If you haven't already done so I also suggest you set up "swaret", either 
from the "extras", or from the net.  It will help you keep your Slackware 
installation up to date (automatically finding all the latest security 
patches etc.).
