Yes, it used to be in /usr/local (or /usr/local/etc or even /var/db/mysql) 
but is now (5.7) in /usr/local/etc/mysql. I removed my.cnf from the
other locations.

In the end, it was too problematic timewise for me to follow the 
now-default mysqld version, because even after getting it running, 
some tables weren't being read. So I restored the vm to pre-upgrade, 
and added a line to make.conf for the poudriere instance corresponding 
to the vm:


and I was then able to use pkg normally. I'll upgrade to 5.7 when
there's a clear upgrade method.
