my mac is a powerPC. and I have tried both 64 bit and 32 bit version.
Both return me "bad CPU type in executable" when I try to do this /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql
I followed all the steps as specified in the mysql official website.
All the versions on http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/ for Mac OSX are for x86 that is Intel computers.
