while working on getting a functional 4.1 distribution again, I noticed 
that running "scripts/mysql_install_db" from a binary 4.1 distribution 
gives me the following error: 
Preparing db table 
Preparing host table 
Preparing user table 
Preparing func table 
Preparing tables_priv table 
Preparing columns_priv table 
Installing all prepared tables 
cat: fill_help_tables.sql: No such file or directory 
030203  8:42:24  ./bin/mysqld: Shutdown Complete 
 o Is fill_help_tables.sql supposed to be part of the distribution? 
   Or is it optional? In which directory must it be located so that 
   mysql_install_db finds it? 
 o What about the shell script fill_help_tables? Include it in the 
   binary distribution, too? 
 o It seems to me, that it parses the manual.texi from the current 
   source tree. This may not work anymore, since we've moved the 
   manual into a separate tree! Please make sure, to take this into 
 o What happens, if fill_help_tables.sql has not been executed by 
   mysql_install_db? Will the mysql binary still work correctly? 

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
Fix scripts/mysql_install_db and scripts/make_binary_distribution to include and find
