Try running mysql_update and mysql_install_db. The last version of
these died with error messages indicating they could not find
executables. The problem appeared to be that the scripts were
generated with either null paths for the executable directories or the
path was ./xxxx (./data was one). I suspect that the original script
values did not
have entries for the paths.
