At most it would require recompilation of PHP (the main port, not the extensions) and installing mod_fcgid. If you enabled CGI and FastCGI during PHP build, you only need mod_fcgid. See http://fastcgi.coremail.cn/configuration.htm#PHP for documentation. (don't forget to remove mod_php from httpd.conf). Note that using FastCGI is different in some important aspects from mod_php, so read up on it if you haven't used it before.
