well... lately i'm having trouble with ports that don't update on time and
i have to 'fish' which mirrors are updated and which not. like for the new
asterisk port for example...

also for stuff that is 'really' important i usually build from src -
apache, php, qmail etc.

so i usually go to the src for mysql too.
nothing against ports really, i like them... i guess i'm just used to
build from src and besides i don't know how to pass options to ports while
installing... like --prefix=/here/ --enable-this, --disable-that kinda
