Ok, disappoingly, I did not get any reply on

As a "solution" (regarding practical terms) I just deinstalled the MySQL 
ports coming with KDE and instead installed MySQL 5.1. 

Then, the Workbench 5.2 port compiled without any issues.
So far, the Makefile of the Workbench52 port was correct.

Of course, some parts of KDE will not work now :-(

As doesn't appear to be too easy to make the Workbench Port work with mySQL 
5.5 I'll propose the KDE folks to ask for a decision on whether to build the 
KDE parts in question with MySQL 5.5 OR with MySQL 5.1. 

This at least should give us the option to work with KDE (including Akonadi 
/ KDE PIM) AND with Workbench as long as Workbench won't work with 5.5  - 
better than nothing ...
