Originally found this here after lots of searching. Making my own link to make sure I can find it again. To use mysqldump on a Mac running OS X 10.5 (Leopard), run the following from the command line: sudo ln -s /usr/local/mysql-5.0.67-osx10.5-x86/bin/mysqldump /usr/bin/mysqldump (I think I had to manually install MySQL from the supplemental CDs that came with the Mac. I'm assuming this version of mysqldump was installed at the same time.)
