That can only happen if you try and install mysqli with PHP4 --- the 
mysqli module (which stands for 'MySQL Improved') is a PHP5 only thing. 
  As the OPTIONS dialog does tell you.

You need to run:

     make config

to redo the OPTIONS stuff.  See the ports(7) man page for details.

That would be me.  In general, the port Maintainer is your first point 
of contact if you're having difficulty with a port.  You can find out 
the Maintainer's e-mail address by:

     make -V MAINTAINER

from the port directory, or most of the time, just by reading the 
Makefile.  Failing that, ask on freebsd-ports at ... or even on this list.
