I wouldn't have thought so but Google suggests otherwise...

You could use your package manager to checksum/restore a clean copy.

Create the missing logfile and see if this fixes things:

# touch /var/log/mysql/mysql.log
# chown mysql /var/log/mysql/mysql.log
# chmod 755 /var/log/mysql/mysql.log

# touch /var/log/mysql/mysql-bin.index
# chown mysql /var/log/mysql/mysql-bin.index
# chmod 755 /var/log/mysql/mysql-bin.index

Now, restart...
