Gee.  Thanks.

Actually, the versions of apache and mysql are controlled through the
dependency chain by the PHP port you install.  The phpmyadmin port
just wants to see that PHP is installed.

Setting the following in /etc/make.conf will make your system default
to apache2 and mysql-5:

    APACHE_PORT=    www/apache2
    WITH_APACHE2=   yes
