Are MySQL port and MySQL the same?

Hi,

I have a question. I installed MySQL using MacPorts.

sudo port install mysql -server

I also noticed there is a gem for MySQL.

Are they the same?

I'm a totally confused.

No. What macports installs for you is the mysql client/server
libraries and binaries. What the gem gives you is a set of ruby
bindings for the client libraries
