I'm embarrassed to admit that, belatedly, I ran
mysqladmin -h localhost variabes
and found the port value to be 0. So I re-ran the installation, found my initial mistake, and made the port 3306. So far as I can determine, it's now possible to connect with localhost.
My humblest apologies to Randy and any others who were inconvenienced by the original complaint. Needless to say, I've learned a lot, but probably not enough...regards...~jess
