Ummm... downloading ports and compiling.  That is your only option for
running that combination of software.  However, stories of the
awfulness of compiling your own software are viciously exaggurated by
those that have never had the pleasure of using the ports system.  The
worst problem you're going to have is the wait to download the ports,
and even that can be minimized by installing from one of the FreeBSD
installion disks and then by using cvsup(1) as shown in the cvsup FAQ
to adopt the installed stuff and update it properly.
