Did you install mysql-server with default options?  Actually, in
mysql51-server port, there is no option to disable install of the
client portion.

Here are some of the ways not requiring connection to Internet I
know ...

  - running "make -V {LIB,RUN,BUILD}_DEPENDS" in a port directory
    also lists the appropriate type of dependency list, so would
    running "make pretty-print-{run,build}-depends-list";

  - pkg_info(1) w/ -[rR] options lists the dependencies for given

  - ${PORTSDIR:-/usr/ports}/INDEX* lists dependencies for each port
    (which may need post processing to be human readable);

  - sysutils/pkg_tree port creates text tree of the dependencies;

As for FM, see ...

  - pkg_info(1) & pkg_tree(7)  man pages;

  - ${PORTSDIR:-/usr/ports}/Mk/

  - Parv
