I've asked MariaDB developers about that and they advised that
libmysqlservices (and appropriate header files) are server development
Plugins which need libmysqlservices are server plugins. There is
separate type of plugins which are client plugins, which have nothing
to do with libmysqlservices.

Basically I'm for having both mysql and mariadb ports semi-identical -
have same install layouts, so if you feel that layout you are using in
mysql55-* is better - it is easy to fix so that mariadb55 will
resemble it.

P.S. I've also noticed that you have .conf file in
"bin/mysqlaccess.conf" in mysql55-client - was that intentional?
Shouldn't it be placed somewhere like /usr/local/etc ?
