You shouldn't need to use any external tools to create sysops.  The account
you created when installing MediaWiki (where the installer asks you for
sysop user name) is a bureaucrat and thus able to create sysops using the
Special:Makesysop page.  You can create more bureaucrats by selecting 'make
this user a bureaucrat' on the same page.
