Check out [http://bugs.mysql.com/bug.php?id=58981]. It may not have anything to do with installing DBD::mysql via MacPorts (although I installed Perl 5.14.1 via MacPorts, I use cpanm for installing all the modules), but I found that I couldn't get DBD::mysql to install unless I set an env variable like so

export DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/local/lib/mysql5/mysql
