According to the manual, section 2.11, "As of MySQL 5.1.9, the
mysqld-max server is included in binary distributions." In fact, it is
not included. (NB: The 5.1.11 beta still did contain the max version, at
least in the noinstall zip archive.) 

How to repeat:
Try to install 5.1.12.

Suggested fix:
Include the missing files.

As of MySQL 5.1.12, there is only one community binary that includes all features previously included in the max binary. (Except BDB, which was deprecated in 5.1.12.)

Clarification: BerkeleyDB wasn't "deprecated" in 5.1.12 - it was removed altogether.

Thank you for your bug report. This issue has been addressed in the documentation. The updated documentation will appear on our website shortly, and will be included in the next release of the relevant products.

I've updated the 5.1 manual to remove references to MySQL-Max except
to point out when it was removed.
