It's working for me with a dirty hack applied to the mysql51-server
port that I have built in the tinderbox.  Patch is attached and
available at:

I haven't spent much time researching the recommended way to build
JUST the embedded MySQL library, so this  patch adds it in to the
general server build.  However, in doing it this way, some files
installed by the mysql51-client port are overwritten if the port is
compiled locally (i.e. not in a tinderbox).  It really seems that this
is the wrong way to build the embedded library, but it worked well
enough for me to get the amarok port built.
