you most probably want to read a chapter in our Handbook located at
http://www.freebsd.org/handbook. That documentation is a great thing

also, for your information - the php4 core port persists in lang/php4

> Also, I need to configure php with the following options:

just type make config, see what options are configurable. if you need
to configure any further things, you will have to edit Makefile and
add these options to CONFIGURE_ARGS.

For a side note, if you need php4 extensions, go for
lang/php4-extensions port and type make config a then choose
extensions you really need, do not use CONFIGURE_ARGS for this.
