I put it in the client block -

 port            = 3306
 socket          = /var/run/mysql/mysql.sock

which works for other clients, like mod_php. Where else would it go?

Yes, I did have two - /etc/my.cnf and /usr/local/etc/my.cnf, but there
was hardly anything in /usr/local/etc/my.cnf; neither removing it, nor
linking it to /etc/my.cnf makes any difference. (mysql on FreeBSD looks
at /etc/my.cnf.)

So, I'm still looking for ideas...
