With the MYSQL option set on?  The default is off, so building the
default configuration numerous times would not have hit this.

It is not a mystery what is wrong.
The RUN_DEPENDS is being executed as a shell command, not a make
definition.  That was never correct, and the new bmake makes this much
more obvious.  Secondly, I'm pretty sure you can specify
databases/mysqltcl without having to execute a make command on that
port.  Thirdly, you use ${MYSQLTCL_VER}, but it's never defined.
Apparently line 46 was intended to define it but does not.  Lastly, if
you were to use a shell command (which I highly discourage), it should
be something like this (not indented, and definitely not hardcoded to
MYSQLT_VER!=  cd ${.CURDIR}/../../databases/mysqltcl && ${MAKE} -V

So that's like 4 or 5 errors right off the bat, problems that were
always present.  I suspect the legacy make simply didn't define
RUN_DEPENDS and continued building, so mysqltcl was never specified in
the package.
