Yes, if you want to run a MySQL 5 server, you will need to uninstall  
the mysql5 port that just got installed (sudo port -f uninstall  
mysql5), and then install it with +server (sudo port install mysql5  
+server). And this will again take a long time. Sorry...

Thank you for reporting this. I recently removed some stuff from  
php5. Before, it would build for apache by default, if you did not  
select a variant. I found this behavior weird; the MacPorts way is to  
select a variant if you want it. So I removed that logic, but did not  
realize what effect it would have on the messages emitted at the end.  
I'll fix the messages.
