Default Joomla FreeBSD port file permissions

The FreeBSD port of Joomla 2.5.11 has the file ownership and permissions of the joomla directories
set as:
drwxr-xr-x   4 root  wheel
The files are:
-r--r--r--  1 www   www
Because of these restricted permissions the Joomla configuration, done through the Joomla web-based PHP code, fails.
The Apache webserver runs as user www and thus cannot modify/write the configuration and remove the Joomla installation directory, that for the sake of security, needs to be done.

So the only way out is to temporarily loosen the permissions and then restore them after configuration.

Is this normal or am I missing something?
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
