This is an rcorder thing - you may find man 8 rcorder and the output of:
rcorder /etc/rc.d/* /usr/local/etc/rc.d/*

I probably need to add extra entries to the REQUIRE line of 
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/radiusd when some of the optional modules are 

In your case, assuming that the MySQL server runs on the same box, 
adding mysql to the REQUIRE line to that it reads

should do the job. The rcorder command will help you check whether that 
is going to work.

Maybe such an addition needs doing automagically in the port - as well 
as the equivalent for Postgres. It wouldn't help any if the SQL server 
wasn't running on the same box, but I'm not sure that it would do any 
harm either.

I may need to think further on this one, though it's not as if a manual 
edit to the rc.d script is that difficult.

Best wishes,
