  I haven't done this yet.  I should.  Let me try again to update my tree on a 
sparc64, and try to build it, and make sure it still fails, then I'll open up a

  Okay.  So, I did build a 5.0 (mysql-server-5.0.90) and install it on my 
sparc64.  But, I can't use it.  For the life of me, I can't figure out how to 
access it.  No account seems to work, at least not with any password I 
  I even tried setting the password for 'root' via the --init-file= mechanism, 
but I am still given "Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost'" when I try to 
connect (-u root, with or without a password).

  Do you have a mysql-server-5.0.* from pkgsrc running on a sparc64?  Do you 
remember/know what you did after installing it, and starting it, to get it all 
set up and operational?  I fear I may've missed some sort of step.  I believe I 
initialized the database datastore properly, but...
