I recently installed PHPNuke and have some observations that might be
relevant to your situation.

1. The version in ports may be behind what is on the project web site.

2. Installing a PHP app from a tarfile is pretty easy, so if ports isn't
cooperating, go to the source. You'll probably just need to edit the
config file with your SQL login info and the user/group that the web
server runs as (probably nobody/nogroup).

Good luck!
