You would have to install one of them with a different $PREFIX, which
would make using that one a bit trickier than the other.  You won't be
able to use both from within the same program as they both implement
overlapping chunks of the DBD::MySQL object heirarchy.

Indeed, it's not clear to me why you would want to have both
installed.  Choose one or the other -- it will make your life a lot
easier.  Personally I prefer p5-DBD-mysql as it is the version
suggested by MySQL themselves:


However the FreeBSD port goes with p5-Mysql-modules, which means I
have to fix things up with pkgdb(1) each time the MySQL server port
gets updated.
