I hope this isn't a absolutly wrong place to ask this.

I installed mysql-server and -client from source.
After the make install I had a /var/mysql directory with
root wheel ownership. When I tried to start mysql I got errors
regarding permissions. So I looked into the original Mysql-documentation
and manually created a user and group mysql and set the ownerships
of /var/mysql/ to mysql mysql.
Is this intended? Or should the install script take care of this?

Ciao , Frank .
