The PHP page about crypt says "As of PHP 5.3.0, PHP contains its own  
implementation and will use that if the system lacks of support for  
one or more of the algorithms." I see the two DES algorithms are  
supported but the MD5 and Blowfish ones aren't. So presumably support  
for those is not in "the system". I'll try to figure out what library  
would provide these algorithms for PHP 5.2.

This was supposed to have been fixed two weeks ago:

If you still see the problem after "sudo port selfupdate" let us know.
