upgrade software with no package db

I'm looking moving to a newer Mysql version on a machine where the
database of installed packages has been trashed.

I'm expecting that after examining /usr/ports/UPGRADING, whatever
READMEs accompany the source, and manually checking for dependencies,
that I can extract and patch the port, and install it.

If anyone has any tips for some way of using the ports framework to make
this any easier please pass them on,
