Oops! Accidentally dropped mysql DB. What to do?

accidentally dropped the mysql database. Don't ask.

I have backups of all the db's consisting of all the mysql statements
(a few days out of sync; nothing terrible). I can import, but I was

I can see var/lib/mysql has all my raw database files. If I
mysql_install_db, will I merely have to change the user and
permissions so that the appropriate user can read/write the
appropriate directories? Or do I need to reimport the dump of mysql
statements from scratch?
