MySQL Installation problem

Content-Type: text/plain;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

To whom it may concern,

We are having some trouble installing a MySQL database onto one of our
servers and would appreciate some assistance, details are below.

Installing MySQL v4.0.14 on a Solaris 8 (Sparc) system on a Netra X1.

We have downloaded the source files from your website and have had a go at
trying to install the software following the instructions on the user
manual. We get to the point of configure and we get the following output:

root@stats1 > ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql
NOTE: This is a MySQL binary distribution. It's ready to run, you don't
need to configure it!

To help you a bit, I am now going to create the needed MySQL databases
and start the MySQL server for you. If you run into any trouble, please
consult the MySQL manual, that you can find in the Docs directory.

Installing all prepared tables
030818 10:39:06 ./bin/mysqld: Shutdown Complete
To start mysqld at boot time you have to copy support-files/mysql.server
to the right place for your system

This is done with:
../bin/mysqladmin -u root password 'new-password'
../bin/mysqladmin -u root -h stats1 password 'new-password'
See the manual for more instructions.

NOTE: If you are upgrading from a MySQL <= 3.22.10 you should run
the ./bin/mysql_fix_privilege_tables. Otherwise you will not be
able to use the new GRANT command!

You can start the MySQL daemon with:
cd . ; ./bin/mysqld_safe &

You can test the MySQL daemon with the benchmarks in the 'sql-bench'
cd sql-bench ; perl run-all-tests

Please report any problems with the ./bin/mysqlbug script!

The latest information about MySQL is available on the web at
Support MySQL by buying support/licenses at https://order.mysql.com

Starting the mysqld server. You can test that it is up and running
with the command:
../bin/mysqladmin version
root@stats1 > Starting mysqld daemon with databases from
030818 10:39:07 mysqld ended

This seems to be all ok, but then I try to compile the program using the
'make' command and I get this message:

root@stats1 > make
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.

Has this error ever happened before and how could we go further on this.

A point to note would be that in the directory /usr/local/ there is no mysql
directory created!
