Yep. Still messed up:
At the start you have:
This should be:
basedir="/usr/local" <<<< finds /usr/local/bin
ldata="/var/db/mysql/" <<<< set up by some other parts of the configure
but not put into mysql_install_db script
I use this quite heavily in some test scripts and installation scripts.
Not to mention
that it pops up during the MySQL installation. You also might have a
peek at the
messages put out during installation. They say something like ... start
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/mysql-server.sh start << drop the .sh
I would have put in a formal PR but I gave up trying to patch the source
Perhaps a little edit script in the pre-install part of the make file?
