Actually, this _is_ an error in the port.  The port should properly
specify the pcre extension as a dependency.  The workaround
will get you going, however.

If this problem is reproducible, you should file a PR.

Are you sure the port installed successfully?  I just installed this
port a few weeks ago and it worked fine.  If you're ports tree is
up to date, then these bugs are newly introduced.

pkg_info shows php5-pcre-5.1.4 installed so is this not
the correct pcre dependency?
