Hmm, do you have more information - in which way did it fail? rc.d
scripts (including those for mysql) bring in variables via rc.subr:

# Add the following line to /etc/rc.conf to enable mysql:
# mysql_enable (bool):  Set to "NO" by default.
#                       Set it to "YES" to enable MySQL.
# mysql_limits (bool):  Set to "NO" by default.
#                       Set it to yes to run `limits -e -U mysql`
#                       just before mysql starts.
# mysql_dbdir (str):    Default to "/var/db/mysql"
#                       Base database directory.
# mysql_args (str):     Custom additional arguments to be passed
#                       to mysqld_safe (default empty).

. /etc/rc.subr


load_rc_config $name

: ${mysql_enable="NO"}
: ${mysql_limits="NO"}
: ${mysql_dbdir="/var/db/mysql"}
: ${mysql_args=""}

Are you saying this part has failed, or that you don't have the proper
variables in /etc/rc.conf?
