This isn't really an RT problem, but that the MySQL port in
OpenBSD doesn't make it clear enough that the shlibs_dir should
be updated (although this is a general issue with ${LOCALBASE}/lib)
I'll have a look (and perhaps convert it to SUBPACKAGES)

I've actually got an RT port for OpenBSD on my TODO list, but it's
quite long at the moment and I might not get to it until next
year - perhaps RT2 will be out by then instead ;)
