Look at: /usr/ports/Mk/ I only perused it briefly, but I 
think you want something such as MYSQL_VER=55m.  The 'm', or 'p' suffix 
switches to either MariaDB or PostgreSQL if I understand correctly.

At any rate, this is the file that controls this. If it doesn't work 
(possibly I've got it wrong), I'd suggest a PR to get it added in.
