No, I guess you've still misunderstood. I don't know how many times I
can say this, but let me try to explain once more: your port should be
buildable with the default settings of all ports involved.
This means that you can't place special requirements like "you have to
first install mysql 3.x, then install the php4-mysql port, then
install this port", because that is too non-generic and will not be
true on systems that already have php4-mysql installed with the
default mysql client.
The solution, which I explained several messages ago, is to make an
alternative php4-mysql3 port, which always depends on mysql 3.x, and
use that instead of php4-mysql (it may need to conflict with
php4-mysql, I don't know). This really isn't very hard and you
perhaps could have done it already by now :)
