Eric, could you do:

# dpkg --force-depends --purge libapache2-mod-php5

and then reinstall it using apt-get

# apt-get install libapache2-mod-php5

I think that you just removed libapache2-mod-php5 in the past, then removed
conf files from /etc/apache2/mods-available/ (this is place where php5.load
and php5.conf gets installed).  If you only 'remove' package without purging
conf files stays in place and if you manually removed them they won't get

I think that this problem is just your local setup and package is not broken.
