The linker is unable to resolve certain compression routines needed by the
MySQL client library. Add "-lz" to the "LIBS" variable in the Makefile.

Or run ./configure --help and look at your options.  You can most likely 
build the port with something like this:
./configure --with_mysql --with_mysql_libs=/usr/local/lib (or whereever your 
libs are)

Sometimes even this will work:
./configure --with_mysql=yes
