If you specifiy a root/admin mysql user and password, the database created takes the default schema when using mysql5. There should probably be a check in the config script to create utf8 databases if the install is opting to use the the mysql 4.1/5.0 schemas.
"CREATE DATABASE `$wgDBname` CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci"
