Hinge replacement questions?

I'm going to be installing new Td5 hinges and hardware soon. I'm wondering what the preferred anti seize is? Also, are the bolts #4 phillips or Torx? If Torx, what size?
Thanks in advance.

The existing bolts are posi drive as Jeff said. I wouldn't re-use the the originals. Replacements come in all variety's including torx and allen as well as phillips. I use copper anti seize.
I have drilled the heads off dozens of frozen door hinge bolts so make certain you do use new hardware and use anti sieze.

I think Mylar washers between screw and hinge would help too for avoiding to remove paint when tightening down.
