Yes, that's likely. Specifically, I think you're misunderstanding

But you don't really need to go that far; you should be able to get
the updated port from the web server. Take a look at
http://www.freebsd.org/ports/index.html, and unless you're on a slow

ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/ports/ports.tar.gz to be sure
you have all the latest ports.
My real question was, why MySQL 4.0? It's missing a lot of the
features of 4.1. Note, BTW, that the latest version of 4.0. is now
4.0.26. But I'd recommend 4.1.14 instead.
