MySQL Port Question

I'm trying to build MySQL 5.0 (server) on FBSD 6.1 from port. I ran "make install clean" but now I'm lost. mysqld is not up. What is my username? Never asked me for one in the install. Tried this:

# /usr/local/libexec/mysqld -umysql
070109 16:39:30  InnoDB: Operating system error number 13 in a file operation.
InnoDB: The error means mysqld does not have the access rights to
InnoDB: the directory.
InnoDB: File name ./ibdata1
InnoDB: File operation call: 'create'.
InnoDB: Cannot continue operation.

Looks like there's probably more that needs to be done to get an out-of-the-box MySQL port installation working. Please advise.
