Can't start MySQL 5.0.67

I've got a server running FreeBSD7 and got MySQL 5.0.67 installed on it today.  I ran mysql_install_db and then assigned the root password.  I tried to get it running on boot (mysql_enable="YES") and by hand (/usr/local/etc/rc.d/mysql-server start) but I can't get the daemon to start.  What else do I need to do to get this working?
