Sure, no problem. By the way, please use Reply To All when you reply,  
so that your mail goes to the mailing list too, and not just to me.

So you need to uninstall that other php5 first, using:

sudo port uninstall php5 @5.2.4_0+darwin_8+macosx

Then you can activate the new php5 you built:

sudo port activate php5
