I am working on installing MySQL 4.1 - Server on Freebsd 4.8.  I have 
gone through several tries and am now stuck with the following error 
which comes up very quickly when I run make.

seth# make
===>   mysql-server-4.1.16 depends on file: /usr/local/bin/libtool15 -found
===>   mysql-server-4.1.16 depends on shared library: readline.5 - found

*** Error code 1

Stop in /usr/ports/databases/mysql41-server.

I have googled around and tried most every solution I could find on 
the web including portupgrade, make clean, make deinstall, etc.   I 
am reasonably sure I have the current versions of the MySQL ports and 
the ldconfig port.  This same error occurs when I try to install 

I'm stuck.

Apologies... if this message is not formatted in a readable form, 
please tell me.  I am sending with Eudora.
