Comment(by pixilla@…):

 The mysql_secure_installation script as executed does not have permission
 to write to .my.cnf.

 You could try:

 $ sudo /opt/local/lib/mysql5/bin/mysql_secure_installation

 The mysql5-server port should have end with this message:

 * In order to setup the database, you might want to run
 * sudo -u ${mysqluser} mysql_install_db5
 * if this is a new install
 Have you installed the mysql db files?[[BR]]
 Also, if you don't have a /opt/local/etc/mysql5/my.cnf file consider
 copying one of the examples provided by mysql.
 ls /opt/local/etc/mysql5/
 ls /opt/local/share/mysql5/mysql/*.cnf
 head -n15 /opt/local/share/mysql5/mysql/*.cnf
 sudo cp /opt/local/share/mysql5/mysql/my-medium.cnf
 sudo port unload mysql5-server
 sudo port load mysql5-server

 This kind of usage question would be better asked on the MacPorts User
 mailing list or a MySQL forum.
