It looks like you have a workign apache2 already.

*For PHP
*cd /usr/ports/lang/php5
make config  ( choose apache module)
make install clean

*PHP5 Extensions
*(lots to choose from but make sure you have mysql at least selected ( 
you'll need this installed obv for wordpress too )
cd /usr/ports/lang/php5-extensions
make config
make install clean

in your apache httpd.conf   in the "AddType" section add

         AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
         AddType application/x-httpd-php-source .phps

In the DirectoryIndex section (or on a new line after it)
Add this line
DirectoryIndex index.php index.html index.htm

*On shell do php-v

on a webpage in your webroot  (e.g test.php)

add this php code

If that shows you a nice php page then you should be good to go with the 
wordpress installer

Good luck!
