When I ran make install in lang/php4, I was presented with a page, 
to select extentions.
Of which mysql is on by default, and you can select postgresql if needed to.
I currently have both running smoothly with php without any problems.
Just remembered...
The latest php port installs postgresql-client-7.3.4_1
I had to install postgresql-7.3.4_1 separately.
But for mysql it should already be in there.
Create yourself a phpinfo() page and see what what with your install...
