The dependency of FCL in ports on mysql and other databases is wrong.
You don't need mysql or others installed for FCL to "work". There are
many units in the FCL but most of them are stand-alone header
translations.

Imagine that when you install java, you'd have to install all possible
databases and libs it has interface to.. that's just not right.

FCL is also a collection of pure fpc libs like containers required to
compile alot of projects/programs which DON'T need any of the databases
or other external libs.

Please remove the dependency in the port and possibly add a warning to
the user that if they want to use external libs from fpc they need to
install them.
