Hmm, well, I just didn't expect to see mysql5-server 5.1.66…

But it looks like akonadi is responsible for this:
$ port dependents mysql5-server
akonadi depends on mysql5-server

In port akonadi one finds
depends_run-append  path:libexec/mysqld:mysql5-server
configure.args-append  -DDATABASE_BACKEND=MYSQL
which means that only if path:libexec/mysqld can't be found mysql5-server would be installed.

But mysql55 supplies mysqld at a different location:
$ port contents mysql55 | grep mysqld
which would require a different path, i.e. path:lib/mysql55/bin/mysqld…

I wonder how such a case could be handled. It looks like the akonadi port needs an update here!!!
