Something must be wrong with your cvsupfile.  I downloaded ports.tar.gz from 

pauls at utd65257# less /usr/ports/lang/php5/distinfo
MD5 (php-5.2.6.tar.bz2) = 7380ffecebd95c6edb317ef861229ebd
SHA256 (php-5.2.6.tar.bz2) = 
SIZE (php-5.2.6.tar.bz2) = 9571312

pauls at utd65257# tar -ztv -f ports.tar.gz | grep ports/lang/php5/distinfo
-rw-rw-r--  0 archive archive     646 May 12 20:04 ports/lang/php5/distinfo

pauls at utd65257# ls -Flash /usr/ports/lang/php5/distinfo
2 -rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel   646B May 12 10:42 /usr/ports/lang/php5/distinfo

As you can see, the distinfo file says php5.2.6, and its size and creation date 
match both in my ports tree and in the tarball I fetched from that server.

If you want current ports, you need this:
pauls at utd65257# grep ports /etc/cvsupfile
ports-all tag=.
