When I was trying to install this in first place, I
couldn't install mysql323-client when mysql5-client
was already installed.  It refused to install.  I had
to install it into a jail by itself with msyql323 and
php4.

I assume that will break the requirement that it be
buildable with defaults, assuming that some other port
that requires mysql has already been built.  Is that a
bad assumption?

Thanks for the education,

Fred
