It sounds like you got it working- but in all honesty, the *easiest*
way to get a good MySQL install on PowerPC is to download the src
rpm, then

rpm -U MySQL-3.23.23-whatever.src.rpm
cd /usr/src/rpm/SPECS
rpm -ba mysql-whatever.spec
[[ long wait while it compiles ]]
cd ../RPMS/ppc

and all the RPM's are right there.

One of the nice things about rpm install is that the dependencies for
any rpm's you download that require MySQL will be satisfied, and you
can check the integrity of the package (such as after a crash or what
not) with

rpm --verify packagename
