afterthought, try making a phpinfo page

it's a php page with the following code:

<?php
phpinfo();
?>

and look at the compilation string, make sure that "--disable-xml" isn't in there, if it is, I'd recommend recompiling PHP without that switch. PHP5 has great XML support in my opinion.

FreeBSD 6.1 is outdated.

On normal FreeBSD system pkg_add -r php5-xml
