Where did you find that? I can't even find a security link.

If you are concerned about security you should refrain from installing phpnuke
until the security status is clarified and all known vulnerabilities are

Yes, you can build the port with
but I strongly advise you not to do it, since the port contains publicly known
remote exploitable security vulnerabilities.
