You should install(*) 'pkgsrc', then just do:
	# cd /usr/pkgsrc/databases/mysql-server
	# make install

The version in pkgsrc is 3.22.32, but that shouldn't be a big deal unless
you need some new feature of 3.23.16.

(*) Install?  Basically pull down the latest pkgsrc.tar.gz via the following
    URL:, then you
    just untar. (so it ends up in /usr/pkgsrc)
