Does anyone know how to change the mysql.sock path in an existing
interchange install / catalog?  I upgraded mysql and now it has
/var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock as the location of the mysql.sock file
whereas before it was /tmp/mysql.sock.  I know I could recompile
with the location changed but would rather not fight the tide on
this one so I don't keep running into it again on future
upgrades (fedora).  So does anyone know how to tell interchange
where to look?  Did grep mysql.sock in the interchange and
catalog directories but this didn't help much (just saw error log
entries).  Right now I have a symlink set up but am looking for a
better way.
