Hmm, --init-file is a mysqld option. So it should work in all 5.7 binaries.
But judging from you saying that "there's no mysqld_safe" this must mean mysqld_safe (and mysqld) are not in your PATH.
Are you sure you're running the server as the "mysql" user ? The docs mention that you should. If that's not the case then it's up to you to set your PATH correctly (or use the full path to mysqld_safe).

But IMHO this is not strictly speaking necessary for a new installation.

https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.7/en/linux-installation-rpm.html says that you can find the auto-generated password by doing :

sudo grep 'temporary password' /var/log/mysqld.log
