It depends on which version of the MySQL distro you're using, but on their
download page, the MySQL team have put up an advisory stating that on certain
platforms with certain compilers, problems can occur - the error is within
gcc rather than MySQL (they claim), so may cause problems.
Firstly, I suggest you use the stable (reccomended) distribution of mysql,
then it really is a case of:
tar zxvf mysql-3.22.xx.tar.gz
and off the top of my head, that's it.
Ports is there for a reason though - any reason why you're not using it?
