It sounds like you configured with the option --without-server.  If you
did that, then you can't run the server (because you didn't make it).
So just run the 'mysql' program and specify a host that you want to
connect with.

If you want the server, then run configure again without that option,
and you should have a mysql_install_db that is functional.  The one that
ends in .sh is a template for the real one, and the real one only gets
created if you make the server.
