This is happing on a fresh virgin install of 6.1.
The config option did not pop up like you say it should.
/usr/ports/Mk/* was just downloaded before downloading
the port files for php5-5.1.2_1.

So everything you said is not true.

Update your ports collection, as your /usr/ports/Mk/* is out of

It does pop up the first time you install the port from /usr/ports.
The only time you need to use "make config" is when you want to
the options that you had selected previously.

The only problem with "make config" is that if the port maintainer
changes the options (adds/removes an option), then it will not pop
again.  Instead it will use your previous configuration.
