Jim - That would just install the mysql client, right?  I didn't think 
that'd change the compiled options on ports which can use mysql.

In my experience, I have to compile mysql support into PowerDNS.  If you 
have to do this across many installs or feel more comfortable using pkg, 
you can set up poudriere to create a local repository which compiles 
PowerDNS with the mysql backend enabled.  I used this tutorial to make 
mine, and it works fine.
