Yes, very strange. Just copy config.default.php and rename it to config.inc.php and update it with your info. Worked for me.

I just had to install phpMyAdmin for someone who doesn't have shell access. The install instructions say you have to create the config.inc.php file. I think the idea is that they don't want to overwrite your settings file when you untar an upgrade it, so they don't have it in the distro.
