David, run-all-tests uses perl scripts which in turn use DBI. The
perl packages are no longer distributed with MySQL, but there are

install those in the the normal fashion (perl Makefile.PL; make test;
su root -c 'make install'), you should be set.
Maybe there should be a note somewhere on the downloads page(s)
mentioning that the Perl modules are required for benchmarking and
