I installed mysql-administrator on /usr/local, but it tries to access files on /opt/mysql-administrator.

How to repeat:
When I try to start it I get this message

[user:/usr/local/mysql-administrator/bin]$ ./mysql-administrator

(mysql-administrator:2078): libglade-WARNING **: could not find glade file '/opt/mysql-administrator/share/mysql-gui/common/connect_dialog.glade'

** (mysql-administrator:2078): WARNING **: could not load glade xml file '/opt/mysql-administrator/share/mysql-gui/common/connect_dialog.glade'

I solved it creating a soft link on /opt/mysql-administrator

Thank you for taking the time to write to us, but this is not
a bug. Please double-check the documentation available at
http://www.mysql.com/documentation/ and the instructions on
how to report a bug at http://bugs.mysql.com/how-to-report.php

Additional info:

As per the FAQ, you must install this binary release of Administrator in /opt,
since it was built with configure --prefix=/opt/mysql-adminitrator.
Later distribution specific binary releases will be properly placed in /usr

Changed in bk repository to use relative paths and shell script trickery ala mozilla
