MySQL port 3306 open to local, closed to other?

Hi folks,

I'm sure it's in there *somewhere*, but I haven't been able to find the 
mysql my.conf or whatever the equivalent is in the MacPorts version.

I need to close off port 3306 to outside traffic (but leave it open to 
localhost) to satisfy the credit card PCI security guys, and I'm told 


in the config file will do just that.  Where exactly would that mysql 
config file be?  Does it matter where in the order I add skip-networking?
