I have a system running four jails. MySQL is running in two of the jails and I
am trying to add it to a 3rd jail. Starting the server gets the message:

  040302 19:34:15  mysql started
  040302 19:34:15  Can't start server : Bind on unix socket: Permission denied
  040302 19:34:15  Do you already have another mysqld server running on socket:
                   /tmp/mysql.sock ?
  040302 19:34:15  Aborting
  040302 19:34:15  /usr/local/libexec/mysqld: Shutdown Complete
  040302 19:34:15  mysqld ended

The new jail was created by copying the file tree from a jail that had the
desired configuration and then doing clean-up as required. In response to the
error I tried configuring mysqld to use a different port and socket file. That
did not fix the problem. I had forgotten the other two mysql's are using port
3306 and /tmp/mysql.sock.

Are you sure that each jail runs on its own, unique IP address? If not, port binding conflicts are to be expected. You cannot have multiple MySQL daemons on the same IP address/port combination, regardless of whether they run inside jails or not.
