I don't think you've done quite enough searching :-)

OpenBSD runs its Apache in a chroot jail by default;
see the FAQ at: http://www.openbsd.org/faq/faq10.html#httpdchroot

By default, the 3.3 horde/php packages do not respect the
chroot and install stuff outside, so if you want to run
them by default, use the '-u' flag to httpd to run it
without the chroot.

I've mostly fixed this in OpenBSD-current, where the PEAR
packages install under the /var/www hierarchy, and can
be seen by the chroot'ed Apache.  For now, your easiest 
option may be to run without the chroot.
