Mac OS X 10.4.4 Update Breaks MySQL

Just updated to Mac OS X 10.4.4, only to discover it will break your MySQL socket configuration.
Here’s the fix… Run the following code in Terminal.app:

$ sudo mkdir /var/mysql
$ sudo ln -s /tmp/mysql.sock /var/mysql/mysql.sock

(Thanks to Blake and John, for spotting the problem and providing the fix)
