I understand.  Moving files around in other applications has not worked for me either.  I was just experimenting with the MacPorts files, and I did learn some important things, such as basedir and srcdir which the MySQL 5.1 Reference Manual says are sometimes necessary to set up the main database.

We can't help you if you move things around after MacPorts has installed them into the proper locations...
