what have you done the whole time?
have you tried RTFM?
we are not here to guide a blind one trough a basic setup
because at the end you have something running and understodd
sounds like you never before had used mysql and missing
all the basics from the first chapters in the well written documentation

you should read the manuals or use a operating system with packages
which are idiot-proof, fedora does this for you:
if [ ! -d "$datadir/mysql" ] ; then
# First, make sure $datadir is there with correct permissions
if [ ! -e "$datadir" -a ! -h "$datadir" ]
mkdir -p "$datadir" || exit 1
chown mysql:mysql "$datadir"
chmod 0755 "$datadir"
[ -x /sbin/restorecon ] && /sbin/restorecon "$datadir"
# Now create the database
action $"Initializing MySQL database: " /usr/bin/mysql_install_db --datadir="$datadir"
chown -R mysql:mysql "$datadir"
if [ $ret -ne 0 ] ; then

they CAN NOT BE FOUND if you have a fresh install and not used "mysql_install_db"
and WHERE they are created depends on your configuration as said yesterday
let me guess: you even have not spent any second for your my.cnf?

on my system typing mysql_ followed with 2 x TAB brings a list of commands
since you think you must not use a environments package-system why
in the world do you not look in your bin-folder at /usr/local/mysql/
and read some docs to understand that the mysql-database is the userdb
mysql_client_test mysql_convert_table_format mysql_fix_extensions
mysql_tzinfo_to_sql mysql_upgrade_replication mysql_zap
mysql_config mysql_find_rows mysql_install_db
