I should have included 'sudo' before that command because you do need to 
run it as root. Like this:

	$ sudo lsof -U -a -p $( pgrep mysqld )
	mysqld  74438 _mysql   21u  unix 0x1a24756463c9ab69      0t0

I am mystified. I installed mysql57 with MacPorts for the first time to 
look into this problem and didn't run into the missing socket problem 
nor did I get that hidden file:

	$ ls -la /opt/local/var/run/mysql57/
	total 8
	drwxr-xr-x  4 _mysql  _mysql  128 Mar 29 00:41 .
	drwxr-xr-x  5 root    wheel   160 Mar 27 15:38 ..
	srwxrwxrwx  1 _mysql  _mysql    0 Mar 28 22:48 mysqld.sock
	-rw-------  1 _mysql  _mysql    6 Mar 28 22:48 mysqld.sock.lock
