mysql41-server/mysql40-server not starting?

I'm having trouble installing mysql4?-server on my 5.3 box.

I've tried both 4.0 and 4.1, same results.

The port compiles and installs fine, but then I cannot start mysql:
# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ start
# ps auxww | grep sql
root          39450  0.0  0.2  1556  812  p2  S+    9:16PM   0:00.00 grep sql

Where'd it go? Let's try invoking mysqld_safe by hand:
# mysqld_safe
Starting mysqld daemon with databases from /var/db/mysql
STOPPING server from pid file /var/db/mysql/
050113 21:16:51  mysqld ended

Not sure where to look for logs indicating the problem and the
doc pages have nothing relevant. Man page doesn't have anything about a
invoking the daemon in the foreground or with different verbosity options.

Erm. Anyone seen this before? Help?
