Upgrade to BSD/OS 3.1. If that is not possible, install BSDIpatch M300-038.
Use the following command when configuring MySQL:
env CXX=shlicc++ CC=shlicc2 \ ./configure \ --prefix=/usr/local/mysql \ --localstatedir=/var/mysql \ --without-perl \ --with-unix-socket-path=/var/mysql/mysql.sock

ulimit -v 80000 and running
make again. If this does not work and you
are using bash, try switching to
csh or sh; some BSDI
users have reported problems with bash and
