Trying to upgrade mysql from 40 to 50 on a 5.4 system. The client will 
update, but when I go to update the server, I get the following error. I 
was able to use pkg_add get 5.0.2 installed so at least it's 
functioning. I've tried to reinstall 40, and then deinstall, but it 
doesn't seem to help. What can I do?

===>  mysql-server-5.0.18_1 cannot install: the port wants 
mysql50-client and you try to install mysql40-client..
*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/databases/mysql50-server.
