The following is what I get when I do mysql_install_db.
/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libcrypt.so.2" not found, required by "my_print_defaults" /libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libcrypt.so.2" not found, required by "my_print_defaults"
(yes, the same message twice)
I looked in ports for crypt but I do not know what exactly to look for to satisfy this complaint.
In addition I got the following complaint:
Neither host '<this_host.domain.tld>' nor 'localhost' could be looked up with
Please configure the 'hostname' command to return a correct hostname.
If you want to solve this at a later stage, restart this script with
the --force option
This is strange because this is also secondary dns server for the domain.

I looked in ports at what is available for mysql and there are a number of listings for various versions. For a particular version there appear to be three separate directories, client, server, and scripts. I am a little confused as to what all to build and install. Now that I have gotten a handle on using ports, I am doing it that way instead of my initial approach, get the tarballs unzip, configure, make and make install (and hope for the best). This happens
to be one of those, accept it is a prebuilt binary package.
mysql-max-5.0.18-freebsd5.3-i386 (hmmm...5.3....?...)
I will try to remove every thing it installed and got to ports if I can not solve
the immediate problems.

Any advice, suggestions, data appreciated.
Thank you
