    I've got mysql server and client v4.1 running on a FreeBSD6.x box. They 
were installed via ports not packages using custom make options which i have 
in portupgrade's pkgtools.conf file. I now would like to upgrade both of 
them to v5, without causing dependency issues with installed apps or with my 
databases. What i was wondering is is there an easy way of doing this? I am 
concerned about my databases, i've done mysqldumps on them, but i have to 
manually go in and create information. I'd rather feed the mysql command a 
complete file and have it automatically regenerate everything. I'm also 
concerned about any compatibility issues. Any help appreciated.
