Um... the port isn't broken, just your expectations of it. The PHP stuff was radically reorganised so that all of the extensions are now created as dynamically loadable modules, which can be supplied as completely separate ports. Most ports that rely on PHP now use the 'USE_PHP' variable to specify exactly which sets of extensions they need. That means there's no more need for a huge plethora of slave ports differing from the main PHP ports only in the set of extensions they use. The bit you're missing is to use the lang/php4-extensions port (or lang/php5-extensions if that's the version you're using). That's a meta-port, inthat it doesn't install anything itself: all it exists for is to depend on your choice of extension ports (chosen by the standard Options mechanism). Give the new style a fair go: most people who have agree that it is actually much better than the previous arrangements.
