    Unanswered: mysql_install_db problems

    I am installing MySQL in AIX 4.3.3 in order to use vBulletin. After doing these steps:

    shell> groupadd mysql
    shell> useradd -g mysql mysql
    shell> cd /usr/local
    shell> gunzip < /usr/local/mysql-3.23.47-ibm-aix4.3.3.0-rs6000.tar.gz| tar xvf -
    shell> ln -s mysql-3.23.47-ibm-aix4.3.3.0-rs6000 mysql
    shell> cd mysql
    shell> scripts/mysql_install_db

    I get this 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
    exec(): 0509-036 Cannot load program ./bin/mysqld because of the following error
    0509-150 Dependent module libz.a(shr.o) could not be loaded.

    Installation of grant tables failed!

    Examine the logs in ./data for more information.
    You can also try to start the mysqld daemon with:
    ./bin/mysqld --skip-grant &
    You can use the command line tool
    ./bin/mysql to connect to the mysql
    database and look at the grant tables:

    shell> ./bin/mysql -u root mysql
    Try 'mysqld --help' if you have problems with paths. Using --log
    gives you a log in ./data that may be helpful.

    The latest information about MySQL is available on the web at
    Please consult the MySQL manual section: 'Problems running mysql_install_db',
    and the manual section that describes problems on your OS.
    Another information source is the MySQL email archive.
    Please check all of the above before mailing us!
    And if you do mail us, you MUST use the ./bin/mysqlbug script!

    I get the same error when trying the ./bin/mysqld --skip-grant & command. Any Ideas?
