No offense taken.  The thing that confused me is that I always build my 
ports in /tmp/portname when testing, but barnyard still managed to find 
mysql headers when building.  So I didn't understand why it was failing in 
QAT.  I followed all the links in the email and read the materials, but I 
still didn't understand why the build failed in QAT.  I didn't want to 
make a change to the port unless the problem really was with the port. 
That's why I asked the question.

Paul Schmehl, If it isn't already
obvious, my opinions are my own
and not those of my employer.
