I was installing the mysql51-server port and I had a message that the install could not proceed, because mysql50-client was already installed. I simply ran a "cd" and then a "make deinstall" in the mysql50-client directory. Is this is the best way to remove a program? Does it depend on how the program was added (compiled versus prebuilt binary added with pkg_add -r)? I've tried pkg_delete in the past, but it seems to always complain about dependencies and not actually remove the program.
In this case, pkg_delete should do the work for you.
with best regards, Ott
