MacPorts MySQL should look for my.cnf in all the same places as any other MySQL, but looking at the portfile now, I'm not certain it actually looks at (/private)/etc/my.cnf. (If it doesn't... I should fix that.) Try moving (or copying) my.cnf to /opt/local/etc/mysql5/my.cnf. Let me know if that works. If it does not, could you show me what's in your my.cnf?
