The p5-Mysql port can be built against any of the versions of MySQL currently available in ports by setting the 'WITH_MYSQL_VER' variable on the make(1) command line, or in /etc/make.conf or in /usr/local/etc/pkgtools.conf if you're a portupgrade user. eg: # cd /usr/ports/databases/p5-Mysql # make install WITH_MYSQL_VER=40 which will use the MySQL-4.0.18 client libraries. Seeing that the p5-Mysql port wants to link against a version of MySQL which is no-longer available in the ports tree, you may instead wish to try installing one of the 'databases/p5-DBD-mysqlNN' ports (where NN is the version of MySQL client you have installed) -- these use the standard perl DBI/DBD database system and can are a more actively maintained drop-in replacement for the p5-Mysql stuff. They are also what is recommended on the MySQL website nowadays: http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/Perl.html Works fine with Bugzilla.
