The PHP5 port has been divided into a fairly large number of modules. To
add MySQL support within PHP5, simply install the databases/php5-mysql
port. (Or php5-mysqli, but only if you're running mysql-4.1.x)
Note that php5-mysql will cause one of the mysql-client ports to be
installed as a dependency -- unless you install one of the other versions
before hand, that will get you the mysql 5.0.x client. You will still
need to install one of the mysql server ports, unless your DB is physically
hosted on a different machine.
Oh -- and the other trap for newbies is that you need to 'make config'
in the lang/php5 port and make sure the 'Apache' box is checked before
you'll get the Apache PHP5 module built and installed.
