Description:
mkdir ndb
cd mysql-test
./mysql-test-run.pl --do-test=ndb

get "Failed to find cluster binaries"

How to repeat:
see above

Suggested fix:
at least print a message in executable_setup_ndb() for verbose running of where it's looking for NDB binaries, or what binary (and path) it didn't find.

this probably just consumed 20+ minutes of my time.

If you have an ndb enabled server, and you don't
have any ndb binaries, you get this error message.
The output from "mysql-test-run.pl" could be more
clear, but it does tell the most important thing,
that it can't find the ndb binaries.

I think this could be handled in a more general
cleanup, as there are other cases where you also
want to know where this script searched for
things before failing.

New mtr.pl in 5.1-rpl will explicitly print the paths it looked in when it failed to find the binary.

Test suite changes. No changelog entry needed.
