That elusive mysqlclient.16

Hi again:

Attempts to build databases/mysql55-server or php5-mysql, or php5-mysqli all
stop with the following error:

Error: shared library "mysqlclient.16" does not exist

I've tried building and rebuilding mysql55-client, tried portupgrade (after
portsnap) all to no avail. Google searches found one item, and that was in

Does anyone know what port is supposed to install this share library? I'd
think the file would be installed by mysql55-client, but apparently not.

All help greatly appreciated...

And a time to every purpose under heaven.
