RTFM make install stop error

I have RT3 up and running but would really like to get the RTFM module
installed. Trouble is I get so far with ‘make install’ and then I get
punted out trying every password I can possibly think of.

In order to create a new database and grant RT access to that database,
this script needs to connect to your mysql instance on localhost as root.
Please specify that user's database password below. If the user has no
password, just press return.

Password: $0 called with an invalid --action parameter*** Error code 255
