Bug Description

Fails to install MySQL 5.1.23 or MySQL Cluster NDB 6.2.15 which its SQL node is based on MySQL 5.1.23. The error log contains the following messages:

111018 18:18:58 mysqld_safe The file /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld
does not exist or is not executable. Please cd to the mysql installation
directory and restart this script from there as follows:

This appears to be a bug of mysqld_safe, which mysqld_safe could forget the given basedir option. To fix this problem, specify --ledir option when invoking mysqld_safe.

This is a bug in some versions of MySQL, where mysql_install_db does not honor --defaults-file and --basedir.
I remember having this problem when MySQL 5.1.23 was released, and solving it by taking mysql_install_db from 5.1.22
