The libapache2-mod-php5 package ships these files as conffiles within
/etc/apache2/mods-available and does not modify them at any point.  This
cannot be a bug in libapache2-mod-php5.

If the files under mods-available (not the links under mods-enabled) were
missing from your system, this must be as a result of some local action or
rogue program.

Unrelated to this package.  Those should be removable by running 'aptitude
purge libapache2-mod-php4'.

Reinstalling with dpkg --force-confmiss would.
