Can you make a copy of /usr/local/etc/php/extensions.ini and put an  
empty extensions.ini in it's place?

This will turn off all of the PHP extensions. The last time I  
experienced core dumps in Apache after an upgrade of my PHP install  
was when some of my PHP Extensions didn't get rebuilt.

If Apache starts with PHP working (but without extensions) then you  
can narrow down which extensions didn't get rebuilt when you upgraded  
to /usr/ports/lang/php5-extensions.
