The broken pipe results from a prior problem. I looks as though perhaps
some option file has a line in that sets the bdb_cache_size variable,
which won't work if the server doesn't support the BDB storage engine.
I'd look in /etc/my.cnf to see if there is such a line; if so, remove
it and try running mysql_install_db again. If you have no /etc/my.cnf,
look for a my.cnf file in the server's data directory.
