That's no longer true... as I understand it the FLOSS Exception in the 
MySQL license mitigates this, as long as your software is released under 
one of the specified open source licenses.

In any case PHP is not GPL but its own PHP License, and MySQL has a 
specific exception in their license for PHP. Which is why Fedora are now 
including MySQL 4.1 and PHP 5 in FC3.
