you should be able to goto the phpBB port directory and do:

# make deinstall

or you could use the pkg_delete(1) tool.  or if you have installed the
utility called portupgrage you can use the tool pkg_deinstall, which i
think is slightly more flexible than pkg_deinstall, but is just a
wrapper for pkg_delete.
