you didn't look very hard:
[sfrancis_(_at_)_hadeshorn:/usr/ports]$ make search key=mod_auth_mysql
Info: Apache MySQL authentication module
Maint: Sam Smith <S_(_at_)_mSmith_(_dot_)_net>

you probably want to look at NIS+ (ugh), Kerberos and LDAP for starters. The
subject of centralized authentication is far too broad to provide anything
more helpful than that, without more details on exactly what your setup is,
and what you're trying to accomplish. login.conf(5) may give you some ideas
as well (see the AUTHENTICATION section).
