I'm using mysql version 5.1.72 on OS X 10.7.5

When running 
mysql_upgrade5 --force --verbose --port=3306 -uroot -p
I get the following error message 

Enter password:
Looking for 'mysql' as: mysql
Looking for 'mysqlcheck' as: mysqlcheck
FATAL ERROR: Can't execute 'mysqlcheck'

I see /opt/local/bin/mysqlcheck5
symlinked to
but don't know how to procede.

Please advise.
