Default NetBSD package searching ?

Hello
May I ask some basic questions about compiled packages.

How do you find out what package a particular file is in ?
Could I for instance go somewhere or run something to find out where, say, libphp5.so is ?

Is a NetBSD binary package different in construction to a OpenBSD package ?
Are they interchangeable ? If not do they, for a given name, contain exactly the same stuff or are they not even compatible in content, never mind construction ?

As I have posted elsewhere I am floundering in php-obscurity-hell.
My goal is to find what packages I need to add to install php for apache .
