That seems about normal.  You should see my Courier port.  That's part of
the point of using ports, so you can uninstall cleanly.

Should be /etc/nagios

Probably ${PREFIX}/libexec or ${PREFIX}/sbin

Install script should create dirs in /var, probably /var/nagios or
/var/spool/nagios.  PID file should probably go in /var/run.

Maybe put these in /var/www/htdocs/nagios and /var/www/cgi-bin/nagios via
