This example is all you need to use ProFTPD with MySQL auth and logging
http://www.proftpd.org/docs/configs/mysql_simple.conf
Not sure about underlying table structure...

Not sure bout versions, you have multiple choices for MySQL
As from MySQL site: 3.x is old 4.0 is stable, 4.1 is testing 5.0 is experimental.
If you have plans to launch your service later than in a month, you can use 4.1 and upgrade when it becomes stable (and your test period is over)
If you launch tomorrow, then 4.0 is suggested

databases/mysql323-client
databases/mysql323-scripts
databases/mysql323-server
databases/mysql40-client
databases/mysql40-scripts
databases/mysql40-server
databases/mysql41-client
databases/mysql41-scripts
databases/mysql41-server
databases/mysql50-client
databases/mysql50-scripts
databases/mysql50-server

Look here too for ways to patch FreeBSD ports to get safer versions of MySQL and kernel
