I wonder why you want to do this.
My system is not 5.3, but STABLE, which refers to
5.4-PRERELEASE at this moment. On this system, it
appears to me that base system and ports have the
same versions (see below). Then why not using
tcpdump from the basesystem?
$ cd /usr/ports/
$ make search name=tcpdump
Info: Ubiquitous network traffic analysis tool
Maint: bms at FreeBSD.org
B-deps: autoconf-2.53_3 libpcap-0.8.3 m4-1.4.1
$ /usr/sbin/tcpdump -V
tcpdump version 3.8.3
libpcap version 0.8.3
