The problem is that for this specific port there is just no pkg-descr
file. The port is there, the path is correct. But pkg-descr does not
exist. And probably never will.
The 404 you get is because links to ports within the documentation are
normally links to the pkg-descr file.
Only 2 ways to fix that:
- - add a pkg-descr file (this would need action from a ports committer)
- - change the link in the documentation (make it inactive in the end)
Option 1 will probably not happen. All ports of this kind are just
"compiling options for the real port" (mysql support for php5 in this
case). And there are a lot of them in the ports tree.
