You tried to build php5  before and it "broke" somewhere in the entire
fetch, configure, build, destroot, install fases.  It broke in such a way
that MacPorts can't pick it up and that's why it is saying: Please perform
'port clean php5'.
If you do a clean it will remove all fases (in this case: remove the mess)
of the process.
After the "sudo port clean <portname>", you can do a normal, regular "port
-v install php5 +macosx+apache2+mysql5+postgresql81"  without the force
