Did you run the "mysql_install_db" script to create the initial mysql database?
Also note that this script did not worked for me when running as the ordinary mysql user. I had to run it as root mysql user and then change the permissions for the datadir to mysql user.

Take a look at the mysql log and error files for a clue about the problem. They should be in /usr/local/mysql/data.
