You can manually create a tracing database with dbunload -n -k.

-n ensures that no data is loaded into the tracing database (not that it would do any harm, it just consumes needless space) -k populates a table that maps schema objects from between the production and tracing databases

If you run this dbunload, you can dbinit a database and run the reload script yourself to see where the syntax error is being generated.
