Are you referring to 'php5-extensions-1.1' in the ports tree? Assuming
you have installed php5 via ports, why couldn't you just run:

        portupgrade -NRryv php5-extensions

You will probably want to run 'make config' in that directory before
running portupgrade.

You could also use portmanager:

        portmanager lang/php5-extensions -p -y -l



Oh, give me a home,
Where the buffalo roam,
And I'll show you a house with a really messy kitchen.
