OK, I once had the same problem. I am assuming that you attempted to start and 
configure MySQL manually after installing it. First of all, make sure you 
have :

mysql_enable="YES" in your /etc/rc.conf file.

Now navigate to the /var/db directory. Either rename or delete the mysql 
directory. You have nothing in it since you did not get MySQL running. Now 
either reboot or navigate to /usr/local/etc/rc.d and as root type:

	./mysql-server start

It is possible yours is named different, so substiture the correct file name. 
That should create the directory with the proper permissions, etc. Now you 
can procede to configure MySQL for your users, etc.
