On 08-Aug-98 Hubert Feyrer spoke unto us all:
#  Ewww - rather /usr/pkg/db/mysql, plus make it settable somewhere. (If you
#  need a user for this, why not make the db end up in ~mysq - but be sure 
#  this is outside of $LOCALBASEl).

I would object to this..  I have a very small /home partition (as others
probably do) and having anything default to installing a potentially large
database there would upset me somewhat..

If the databases are machine dependant then they should be in libdata/mysql, if
they are shareable, share/libdata IMHO.
