According to the php makefile (Makefile.php):

# Note that this is generally not needed as many of the extensions (mysql,
# pgsql) may be dynamically loaded, and are separately packaged in pkgsrc.

 From that I would guess that you do not need to ./configure
--with-mysql=... and that installing php-mysql and dynamically loading
it would suffice.

I am not familiar with PHP, and this is more a PHP question rather than
a NetBSD/cobalt question.  A better place to find an authoritative
response would be a PHP mailing list :)
