Troubles w/ mysql installation, "create" cannot make innodb

Hello all. I'm trying to get mysql installed on OpenBSD 3.4.
Unfortunately, it appeares that the port only installes the
mysql-client, and one needs to install the -server package seperately.
This would be fine with one exception, there is a dependency that
breaks when installing from ports. This lead me to install from
source, and now I'm having problems just getting mysql to start.

If anyone could look at the error message below, and possibly
enlighten my, I would be very grateful.

if you would like to email me, my address can be obtained by running
the following:

perl -e ' $email = "usenet\@fakedomain.com"; $email =~
s/fakedomain/nicholasbernstein/ ; print "$email\n";'


Arch/version info:

bash-2.05b# uname -a:
OpenBSD orthrus.--------.com 3.4 GENERIC#18 i386

mysql -v :
/usr/local/libexec/mysqld Ver 4.0.20 for unknown-openbsd3.4 on i386
(Source distribution)

Command output:

bash-2.05b# /usr/local/libexec/mysqld -u mysql
040622 15:29:27 InnoDB: Operating system error number 2 in a file
InnoDB: See http://www.innodb.com/ibman.php for installation help.
InnoDB: The error means the system cannot find the path specified.

InnoDB: does not create them.
InnoDB: File name /usr/local/var/lib/mysql.innodb/ibdata1
InnoDB: File operation call: 'create'.

Thanks in advance,
