it seems that - to do this properly - we'd have to depend on mysql for
php, and as there are other databases possible, we didn't enable any
database support at all. admittedly, this is suboptimal.

for you, i think just adding the --with-mysql to the CONFIGURE_ARGS script
should work for you.

i wonder if we should check if mysql is installed in the pkg Makefile, and
if so, add that switch automatically. (somebody's gotta play with that...
