need help in using utf8 charset

hello everyone ,

I use mysql-4.1.3 in Fedora(1 or 2) and I have problem running mysql with any collation other than latin1_swedish_ci.
I have read the manual and tested two cases;

what I did:
case 1)
./configure -prefix=usr/local/mysql
make install

then i installed db and ...

I start mysqld :
./mysqld_safe --user=mysql --default-characer-set=utf8 --default-collation=utf8_turkish_ci

it says : client-characterset=latin1_swedish_ci , server-characterset=latin1_swedish_ci

again I start mysql with command lines:
./mysql --default-characterset=utf8 (no --default-collation for mysql)
it says : client-characterset=utf8_general_ci , server-characterset=utf8_general_ci
but still not utf8_turkish_ci

case 2)
./configure --prefix=user/local/mysql --with-charset=utf8 --with-collation=utf8_turkish_ci
make install

now mysql_install_db fails to create tables of database.There is no file containing error message in mysql/var folder.

I want to test utf8 characterset with any collation (not utf8_general_ci) but i don't know what the problem is.
