mysql51-server won't start after upgrade

I just upgraded mysql51-server with cvsup and portupgrade.

Now it won't start, and the error I am getting is:
[ERROR] /usr/local/libexec/mysqld: unknown variable 

I have been scanning the release notes, but I haven't found anything 
yet, that indicates that this variable has been deprecated, and it still 
appears in the example my.cnf files.

Anybody know what is going on here?

full log below.
