A .tar of what? The sources? Better put them into /usr/ports/distfiles.

Hmmm... Well that should have installed the php5-mysql port for you,

Hmmm... Seems you have a version of the ports tree which is a few months
out of date.

As a basic rule you should never have to directly edit any file
within the port directory.
To make mysql-5.0.x the default version on your system, edit /etc/make.conf
Then do a 'make clean' in the php-mysql port and try again.
