In fact, it's a nasty building related problem :-)
When you build mysql-server-4.x, p5-DBD-mysql is compiled with the
current version of mysql-client, by performing a simple test on MySQL
libs, if no libs are install, default is 3.23.
The main problem with this, is that, when the packages is built,
depedencies are not built, but install via packages,
then you have a nasty conflict.

3.23.x dependencies are added because native p5-DBD-mysql use 3.23 
driver for the Perl5 Database Interface (DBI)|/usr/ports/databases/p5-DBD-mysql/pkg-descr
|skv at|databases perl5|mysql-client-3.23.57 p5-DBI-1.37|mysql-client-3.23.57

It's a big headache to fix this kind of conflict, since the buid cluster
doesn't handle make-time switches.
I've made a patch to test it, and it's quite suboptimal :-)
