I don't know what you mean by "crap". Sorry.
Actually I do ... you're about to embark on a rant about Mac.
Go for it! :)

What would you suggest as a fool-proof method to accomplish this?
I hate to tweak the 'original' my.cnf, I could add a ~/.my.cnf
but how would I do that without clobbering my 'non-drupal' mysql?
I want to reiterate that cp -p -r might actually be the solution,
but have not tried that approach in the past

Oh don't get me started! Grr! If truth be told, I'm a long-time
linux user and new to OS X.
You are preaching to the converted my friend.
I'm not certain I like the way acquaire did the setup. I
didn't have this problem when I played with drupal on ubuntu.
Great minds run in the same gutter.
