To get the most minor nit out of the way first: the port is called php4-mysql. And, no you won't see MySQL amongst the configuration options for the base PHP executable. That's because nowadays the MySQL support is built completely separately as a loadable module. You should have read the 20040719 entry in /usr/ports/UPDATING where this is explained. Try running: % php -m which will tell you about all of the loadable modules you've got available. Look more closely at the phpinfo() output -- there should be a whole section on MySQL later on. If that isn't there, then you need to pay some attention to your /usr/local/etc/php.ini file: if you use the default one provided by the lang/php4 port, everything should just work.
