    The only mysql user privs you should need are Select_priv, Insert_priv, Update_priv, Delete_priv, and Create_priv.
    I would double-check your $abspath and $b2inc values... You might want to consider starting with the 0.72 release candidate. It has a friendlier initial setup.

    Thanks for helping out, dougal.
    I downloaded 0.72 and installed it. I get the same results for /wp/wp-admin/wp-install.php as before:
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    <META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"></HEAD>
    <BODY></BODY></HTML>
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    Here are the lines I changed in my wp-config.php (nothing at the end of the file):
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    define('DB_NAME', 'mc'); // The name of the database
    define('DB_USER', 'mcadmin'); // Your MySQL username
    define('DB_PASSWORD', 'xxx'); // ...and password
    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost'); // 99% chance you won't need to change this value

    I bet there's a problem with it connecting to mysql. For fun, here's how I access mysql, get the stats for the database mc and then try to lookup the wp_posts table:
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    [bin]$ ./mysql -p --user=mcadmin mc
    Enter password:
    Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
    Your MySQL connection id is 50 to server version: 4.0.15-standard-log
    Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.

    Alright, I'll answer my own question: I didn't compile php4 with the --with-mysql option.
    Things progressed a lot farther after recompiling php.
    I still have some errors...but at least things seem to be working now :)
