Not sure.  Try something like:

[12] Wed 28.Jul.2010 16:08:53 
[kadmin at archangel][~]
$cd /usr/ports/www/apache22 && sudo make show-modules | grep cgi
cgi: enabled (shared)
proxy_scgi: disabled
cgid: disabled

If "make show-modules" says "enabled" and the port still configures
with "--disable-cgi", I'd definitely contact the maintainer and
see what's up.

My $.02,
