Using pkg or /usr/ports, the approved FreeBSD way is to uninstall 5.6 +
extensions + other dependencies and reinstall. PHP can be coaxed into another
directory, say /usr/local/lib/php72. The extensions however will only install
PHP and its extentions can be installed into alternative directories using the
install from php.net
