I just noticed this at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/automatic-start.html

On FreeBSD, startup scripts generally should go in /usr/local/etc/rc.d/. The rc(8) manual page states that scripts in this directory are executed only if their basename matches the *.sh shell file name pattern. Any other files or directories present within the directory are silently ignored. In other words, on FreeBSD, you should install the mysql.server script as /usr/local/etc/rc.d/mysql.server.sh to enable automatic startup.

That's not actually right is it? My mysql is started by /usr/local/etc/rc.d/mysql-server. rc(8) says *.sh is for older style startup scripts or for scripts that are to be read into the current shell.
