I did an install of 1.0-CVS on FreeBSD-3.4-STABLE today, and apart
from needing to use gmake, the installer attempts to 'chgrp root'
some files, which doesn't exist on FreeBSD (root user is in the
wheel group).

I actually had a problem with a wierd password for mysql, since
it isnt escaped by perl I think, and wierd characters like $ get
parsed, which could be your problem.  Try a simple one like "test"
with no special characters and see if that works.
