databases/mysql-client is a dependency of fpc-mysql and the fpc-mysql is
part of fpc-base. if we want to compile fpc-fcl, we need the fpc-base
or it will not compile.

It doesn't install the databases, only it installs the necessary
libs to compile your fp programs. If you want, you could comment the
lines of the dependencies.
