Commit something that I've been sitting on for just about months now:
make the PHP3 ports work with any version of MySQL, not just 3.23.x.
The main (actually, the only) problem was that MySQL 4.x no longer has
mysql_drop_db() and mysql_create_db() as separate functions, and just as
mentioned in the manual, the solution is to use mysql_query() (or
rather, mysql_real_query()) and emulate them.
