This example is all you need to use ProFTPD with MySQL auth and logging

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
