With answers come enlightenment... and more questions!

Your explanation about the differences between 3.1-STABLE and 4.0-CURRENT
make complete sense (the term DOH! comes to mind...); however, now I have a
few more questions...

The latest version shown under 3.1-RELEASE is mysql-3.22.16g. Using
sysinstall, is this the only version I can use?

When I try to cd into /usr/ports there is nothing there?!?

I have tried this method also but get the following errors (the mysql322 dir
is /usr/local/mysql322):

homer# make install
"/usr/share/mk/", line 2: Could not find
"Makefile", line 44: Malformed conditional (!defined(NATIVE_THREADS) &&
${OSVERSION} >= 300000)
"Makefile", line 53: if-less elif
"Makefile", line 53: Need an operator
"Makefile", line 58: if-less elif
"Makefile", line 58: Need an operator
"Makefile", line 65: if-less endif
"Makefile", line 65: Need an operator
"/usr/share/mk/", line 2: Could not find
make: fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue

This error gives me no idea of what the problem might be.

Thanks once again for the assistance,
