thread_concurrency is, I believe Solaris-specific, but I don't know what
skip_show_database is probably ON if you specify the --skip-show-database
option when you start the server. This prevents people from seeing databases
and tables for which they have no access privileges. It can improve
security if you're concerned about people being able to see what databases
and tables other users have.
net_retry_count - don't know.
init_file is probably the name of the file specified with the --init-file
option when you start the server - a file of SQL statements you want the
server to execute when it starts.
delayed_key_write - Sasha explained it above
concurrent_insert - don't know. I would think it's related to allowing
INSERT during SELECT, but it seems to be always turned off in my copy of
the source, so perhaps not.
ansi_mode - don't know. I think it has something to do with whether or
not the parser ignores spaces after function names and before '('.
