Installing a package without a non-needed dependency is doable. I did the 
following to install libreoffice and keep mysql56:

    pkg install libreoffice
    pkg delete -f mysql57-client
    pkg lock libreoffice
    pkg install mysql56-server

In this case it works fine because I do not care about using the DB viewer.
