Luckily the client packages are small (under 1MB), so it's not a major
problem if both 3.23 and 4.0 get installed.

Doesn't the port build handle this right?  mysql40-client is listed
before p5-DBD-mysql in RUN_DEPENDS, so ideally should be
able to build and install the 4.0 client, then just use that for the
p5-DBD-mysql build.
