Indeed but in macports it looks like the port names have a "-server" 
suffix for server part:
mysql5 and mysql5-server : 
clamav and clamav-server :

You're right it might be better to have consistent naming across 
platforms but changing the name has an impact on the port file. Feel 
free to propose a Portfile patch to the macports community 
(documentation is here: http://guide.macports.org/#project.update-policies).

I don't have commit privileges so you'll need to create a trac ticket 
(http://guide.macports.org/#project.tickets) to get your changes 
accepted by the macports commiters.

I've submitted 3 patchs the 16th Nov in the Xymon-developer mailing list.
