You can reinstall it using one of the following:
 # portinstall -rR mysql41-server
 # portupgrade -rRN mysql41-server

I don't know about linuxthreads on 4.X, but GNU readline is a dependancy
if FreeBSD version is <5.  Furthermore, i don't think USE_GNU_READLINE is
a valid build option in the ports tree.  Nevertheless, you can try:
 # portinstall -rR -m 'WITH_LINUXTHREADS=yes' mysql41-server
