There's a separate new port www/mod_php5 with the apache loadable module
now.  Just install that and you should be good to go.

Alternatively, try using nginx + php-fpm -- this runs your PHP code as
an FCGI application, which has a number of security advantages over the
traditional apache+mod_php 'run it in the process exposed on the net'
style.  It's also blazingly fast...
