Apologies if I didn't explain myself properly.  The issue is that tindexbox-
devel does not recognise databases/p5-DBD-mysql as a valid port.  See 
/usr/local/tinderbox/scripts/lib/ where it requires a port of 
format "databases/p5-DBD-mysql[456][0145]" which will not match databases/p5-

# ls /usr/ports/databases/p5-DBD-mysql[456][0145]




For clarity, on my system I get, for:
# ls /usr/ports/databases/p5-DBD-mysql
Makefile  distinfo  pkg-descr pkg-plist
and that tinderbox-devel did install that port originally, until I make the 
change in the previously attached file.

I hope this explains things better.
