Hmmm... I'd cvsup again and try with a fresher ports tree.  There were
quite a number of significant changes made to the tree to do with the
update from php 5.0.5 to 5.1.1 -- I suspect you've just been caught by
fallout from that.

If the problem still occurs, please do as the error message suggests:
send the config.log and all other relevant information you can find to
the port maintainer.
