MythTV on amd64 - further testing

One other thing, in case it has been missed:
libdts support doesn't work on the amd64 platform right now, my
workaround is  to add '--disable-dts' to the './configure' line in the
port Makefile.

I got another failure, which I don't understand:
( [ -d config ] && cd config ; make -f Makefile install; ) || true
/bin/mkdir -p /usr/local/share/mythtv/database

        ! multimedia/mythtv     (install error)

I have checked:
- mysqld is running (and it was started before Iinstalled the MythTV port)
- a manual 'pgrep mysqld' sets the return code to zero, as intended

What is wrong here?
Torfinn Ingolfsen,
