Correct, because the software cannot coexist in the same install

If there is no problem with using the mysql 5.x client, then just use
mysql 5.x and be done with it.  You need to figure out whether or not
that is true.  If it is false, then there's clearly a problem for you
(since in the situation we've been discussing php4-mysql will be using
mysql 5.x).

This whole discussion came about because you were trying to look for a
way to force everything (including php4-mysql) to link to mysql 3.x,
which is currently impossible to achieve satisfactorily without
further work on your part.
