4.0.14 install problem: mysqld crashes

Description: I've recently compiled mysql 4.0.14 on redhat 8.0.
The installation fails, however, when running mysql_install_d b.
I've attached a transcript below.

I gather from searching the 'net that this isn't an entirely
unusual thing to happen, and is likely the result of some
misconfiguratio n on my part, or perhaps a version incompatability
with my libc. Unfortunately, I haven't seen any concrete suggestions
on how to get past it.

I've studied the installation instructions pretty closely,
experimented with various compilation flags. I just keep getting
the same results.

This should be a pretty vanilla installation. Can someone please
point me in the direction of figuring out what I'm doing wrong?

This could be because you hit a bug. It is also possible that this binary
or one of the libraries it was linked against is corrupt, improperly built,
or misconfigured. This error can also be caused by malfunctioning hardware.
We will try our best to scrape up some info that will hopefully help
the problem, but since we have already crashed, something is definitely
and this may fail.

key_buffer_size =8388600
read_buffer_siz e=131072
max_used_connec tions=0
max_connections =100
threads_connect ed=1
It is possible that mysqld could use up to
key_buffer_size + (read_buffer_si ze + sort_buffer_siz e)*max_connecti ons =
225791 K
bytes of memory
Hope that's ok; if not, decrease some variables in the equation.

Attempting backtrace. You can use the following information to find out
where mysqld died. If you see no messages after this, something went
terribly wrong...
Cannot determine thread, fp=0xbf5fea68, backtrace may not be correct.
Stack range sanity check OK, backtrace follows:
../mysql_install_d b: line 1: 31298 Segmentation fault
/usr/local/mysql/libexec/mysqld --bootstrap --skip-grant-tables --basedir=/u
sr/local/mysql --datadir=/usr/local/mysql/var --skip-innodb --skip-bdb
Installation of grant tables failed!

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

shell> /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql -u root mysql
mysql> show tables

Try 'mysqld --help' if you have problems with paths. Using --log
gives you a log in /usr/local/mysql/var 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_d b',
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 /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqlbug
