Ummm... you can put the following (or something like it) in
/etc/make.conf before installing a port that depends on PHP or MySQL
or Apache:

    WITH_APACHE2=   yes
    APACHE_PORT?=   www/apache2  
    DEFAULT_PHP_VER=        5

which will override the default dependencies and cause the wanted
versions of those ports to be installed instead.
