MySQL installation through the ports system requires cmake and libaio to be installed first, or else installing MySQL will not complete. libaio requires cmake as well, so be sure to install cmake first.
# cd /usr/ports/opt/cmake # pkgmk -d -i
# cd /usr/ports/opt/libaio # pkgmk -d -i
MySQL requires the mysql user and group to exist prior to successful installation. Create them before insattling mysql via ports.
# groupadd mysql # useradd -g mysql -M -s /sbin/nologin mysql
Installing from ports
# cd /usr/ports/opt/mysql # pkgmk -d -i # mysql_install_db --user=mysql
