Yes, sorry, ldd does not work on shared libraries on FreeBSD.
objdump -p /usr/local/lib/ser/modules/mysql.so |grep lib  
was the right command.

This means your libmysqlclient library is not in your shared library
cache file and the dynamic linker cannot find it.
(see ldconfig(8), rtld(1)).

You can merge your mysql libs to the system cache:
ldconfig -m /usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql  # you have to run it as root

or you can set up the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql 

However you will have to do this each time you reboot the machine. 
To do it automatically add /usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql to
ld_config_paths in /etc/rc.conf: 
ldconfig_paths="$ld_config_paths /usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql" 
(ldconfig_paths is initialized in /etc/default/rc.conf).
