Yes there is. You install the main PHP5 port first, then follow up by 
installing the php5-extensions port. When you either do it the first time, 
or subsequently do make config you will be presented with a menu listing all 
the php extension options. This is where you build the individual module(s) 
which you require. For example, the most common is probably MySQL support. 
You would tick the box next to the mysql module in the menu. Even if you 
chose to build all of them you can deactivate any you don't need after the 
fact in /usr/local/etc/php/extensions.ini file.

Strongly recommended for you to use the ports system. You will find your 
system much more easily maintainable for the future.
