It depends on which version of the MySQL distro you're using, but on their=20=
download page, the MySQL team have put up an advisory stating that on certain=20=
platforms with certain compilers, problems can occur - the error is within=20=
gcc rather than MySQL (they claim), so may cause problems=2E

Firstly, I suggest you use the stable (reccomended) distribution of mysql,=20=
then it really is a case of:

tar zxvf mysql-3=2E22=2Exx=2Etar=2Egz
cd mysql-3=2E22=2Exx
make install
cd /usr/local
bin/safe_mysqld &

and off the top of my head, that's it=2E

Ports is there for a reason though - any reason why you're not using it?
