The port only installs php.ini-dist and php.ini-recommended, which are the
ones from the PHP source tree. If neither of these is copied to php.ini then
php.ini-dist is hardcoded inside php itself, also not something the FreeBSD

Correct. You can however clean the entire environment, by setting
apache22limits_enable="YES" and apache22limits_args="-e -E -C daemon".
If you need specific variables to be available and the rest to be gone, the
