Thanks, John. I sort of suspected the "details" were what did me in, but I've gotten out of tight situations before, using newer tools. In this  case, I opted to use newer versions for several tools and didn't pay close attention to some of the instructions because I thought I had more leeway.

I'll give it another go, since you said it is doable. Once I build it the right way, I'll see if I can troubleshoot my initial problem of the MySQL hangs, locks, and, crashes.

Mv isn't broken, automake isn't broken, and Perl doesn't "screw up".  

You must follow the instructions in the Wiki *exactly*...
