This is done with:
/usr/pkg/bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'
/usr/pkg/bin/mysqladmin -u root -h wolf password 'new-password'
See the manual for more instructions.

/usr/pkg/bin/mysqladmin: unable to change password; error: 'You must have privileges to update tables in the mysql database to be able to change passwords for others'
