`port select` is a convenience that places symlinks in /opt/local/bin. If `port select` doesn't work, you won't be able to call the programs by their convenient shortened names, but you can still call them by their absolute paths wherever the port put them. You can find out where the port put them by using `port contents mysql57`. For example, if you had wanted to run `mysqld_safe`, you would instead run `/opt/local/lib/mysql57/bin/mysqld_safe`.
