Can't you just downgrade the php port to the previous version?

If you use any of the port management tools t update them you can
configure them to ignore the php ports as long as your users still
have not updated their apps for the new php version(but such a
condiscending attitude toward users will slow down such migration
indefinitely, at least that's what happens usually with users).
