I don't know what the difference is between your FreeBSD 3.1 system
and mine, but it works for me.
I have this stuff at the end of my /etc/rc.local:
echo -n 'starting local daemons:'
# put your local stuff here
/usr/local/bin/safe_mysqld -l --user=junkyard&
I did have to make a change to /etc/rc.conf or mysqld would fail
to find the mysql shared libraries. I added /usr/local/lib/mysql
to this line:
ldconfig_paths="$ldconfig_paths /usr/local/lib/mysql" # shared library
(the initial value of ldconfig_paths is set in /etc/rc, I'm just adding
the location of the mysql libraries to that value.)
The symptoms at system startup for me were that I'd get a message on the
console from ld.so (I think, it's been a while) about not being able to
resolve symbols when starting mysqld. It took me a while to figure out
what to do, because adding /usr/local/lib/mysql to /etc/ld.conf didn't
make any difference. (Doing that worked for staring mysqld while logged
in as root, but not at system startup time.)
