I'm clearly missing something. Here's my output when installing mysql55-server. I see no message about a startup item. It seems like such a message should appear when installing the port and during port notes. 

$ sudo port install mysql55-server

If this is a new install you might want to run:

$ sudo -u _mysql /opt/local/lib/mysql55/bin/mysql_install_db
