The FreeBSD ports of MySQL don't install a my.cnf file; if they did,
it would be in /usr/local/etc/, not /etc.  So it looks as if this is
something you've done.  The /xxxxxxxxx refers to a file name, of
course.  It's barely possible that the error message is wrong and that
it's really saying "can't find file /xxxxxxxxx".  Does the file exist?

Which version of MySQL?  This facility was introduced with release 4.0
of MySQL.
