What should the permissions be for the MySQL 5 install on Mac OS X. By
default it was Owner = System Group = wheel.

Could someone give me a list of directories and what owner:group
settings I should have?

Usually, the mysql directory and its contents are owned by root, except the data
directory and its contents, which must be owned by mysql. Groups don't matter
to mysql itself, but are useful externally. Group wheel is fine for the
root-owned stuff, but group mysql is typical for the mysql-owned data directory,
including contents. This is described in the manual
<http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/installing-binary.html>.
