I'm trying to port some software to Mac, and it uses mysql and odbc. 
The mysql-connector-odbc port depends on mysql5, but I also had an issue 
with mysql5 for which I was told to use another mysql package:

Is there another port for the MySQL ODBC connector that uses a 
different version of MySQL? Or do I have to install multiple versions of 
mysql to get both select support and an ODBC connector? Alternatively, I 
could recommend that my users create symlinks manually, but I feel like 
that could cause trouble if they later want to use a different version 
of MySQL and forgot about the manually-created symlinks.
