Hi nedimk,

Your command lines display the following error :

 ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql  --without-bench

In this command line you requested  mysql to be installed in /usr/local/mysql directory. At the same time,  you  unpacked the source in the same directory. So, when it tries to install (that is, it starts to copy the compiled files in the proper directories), it tries to copy one file over itself,  and this is regarded as an error.
The solution is simple: remove the simlink and give (to be on  the safe side) a

make clean

and after that repeat the instalation process:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql  --without-bench
make
make install

it should work.
