I've never had a problem installing freeradius w/ mysql on freebsd. 
I've heard of others having issues when they install mysql with linux
threads, such as WITH_LINUXTHREADS=yes on a port install.

I'd try first installing mysql 50 server from the ports collection,
without using linux threads.  I usually just do a make install clean
w/out any additional arguments.  Then install freeradius from the
ports collection.  That's always worked for me.

What version of freebsd are you using?
