p5-DBD-mysql pkg/port issues

My question, so I'm not wasting your time, is, is this broke or as intended?

So, lock the Marias, errors get worse. Much worse.
Lock p5-DBD-mysql and things are fine, but of course it never gets upgraded.

Does the Makefile for p5-DBD-mysql just need to be fixed to allow Maria as an options?
my guess is that you built the marias manually (which is not the default flavor of mysql) and now you're trying to update it with official packages, which of course cannot work.
You have three options:
  1. build everything yourself (setting version options in local make.conf file)
  2. use only vanilla packages (official freebsd binaries)
  3. Using synth you can build some things yourself and get the official binaries for the rest.
Is it "broke"? No, it's user-error.
to elaborate: official packages are built with 1 specific version of mysql (maria is considered a different version of mysql) so any packages that need mysql will bring in the default version, not maria.
