The theory is that mysql5 +server will not only install the mysql5
client libs, but also the server.
But due to a bug in the 5.0.x series, --without-server is ignored and
the mysql5 server is always built. So at the moment the only difference
is the launchd startupitem.
There are plans to split off a separate mysql5-server from the port. See
#14146  and #12313  for more details.
