Update: please see my new post: PHP 5.3 Isn’t That Bad
MediaWiki doesn’t like PHP 5.2.8, I had to upgrade PHP to install MediaWiki. PortUpgrade upgraded PHP to 5.3.3 successfully, but it got problems while upgrading PHP modules, it’s mainly caused by the change of PCRE package which became part of PHP on FreeBSD since 5.3. If you need to upgrade to PHP 5.3.x, make sure you read /usr/ports/UPDATING and this thread.
