However, when ‘port mpkg’ builds the installer component for the mariadb (client) software is ALSO includes the Pre/Postinstall scripts—it doesn’t know that they’re only intended for the server side.  

Why does it do that?

To me, it seems like the simple solution would be for the scripts that pertain to mariadb-server to only be included with the mariadb-server port and not with the mariadb (client)  port.
