After installation, did you:

1. execute:  /usr/local/bin/mysql_install_db
2. execute:  /usr/local/etc/rc.d/ start

Once you get the administrative tables setup and server started, you will 
still have to invoke the mysql client correctly.  Please see the mysql man 
page and the online documentation:

Best of luck,
