9/10    Has anyone compiled MySQL on Solaris 2.8 and had problems when
        it gets to mysql_tzinfo_to_sql?  I'm getting:
        ld: fatal: library -lpthread: not found
        ld: fatal: library -lthread: not found
        ld: fatal: library -lposix4: not found
        and make is failing.  I'm compiling MySQL 5.0.24, 32 bit.
        gcc 2.95.2.  I just tried it --with-mit-threads, but that didn't
        work either.  Please email me.  I want to burn the entire server
        room at this point.  Thank you!  -sax
        \_ I never had your specific problem but it looks like either you
           don't have those libraries installed or your library path is
           broken.
        \_ I have built 3.23.xx and 4.0.x on sol 8/sparc with both the suncc
           and gcc.  Have you tried the flags MySQL uses?
           http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/mysql-binaries.html
           \_ Thank you both!  There were a few more command line options
              I was missing that helped.  I was using
              --with-mysqld-ldflags=-all-static, which apparently doesn't
              work on Solaris.  My biggest problem, though, was that it
              looks like this version of gcc was installed incorrectly.
              Switching over to gcc-3.2.1 solved the rest of my problems.

        sit there unused. Is this true? I have a bunch of new quad core

2/5     I like Adobe Flash. When written correctly, it scales along
        with your browser size. It looks consistent on every single
        browser. It is predictable. On the other hand, I'm not a big
        fan of CSS/HTML, which for the most part, look wildly different
        between browsers, and don't even work consistently or
        correctly at times. So why do so many people (like Steve Jobs)

        disk activity lights were blinking like crazy and I could hear the

        Anyway, I think UNIX uses unlink() when files are deleted. Shouldn't

Section 22, "Standard MySQL Installation Using a Binary Distribution". The RPM distributions for MySQL 50 releases that we make available through our Web site are generated by MySQL AB. These binaries are configured and built with the following compilers and options. This information can also be obtained by looking at the variables COMP_ENV_INFO and CONFIGURE_LINE inside the script bin/mysqlbug of every binary tar file distribution. Anyone who has more optimal options for any of the following configure commands can mail them to the MySQL internals mailing list. If you want to compile a debug version of MySQL, you should add --with-debug or --with-debug=full to the following configure commands and remove any -fomit-frame-pointer options. MySQL AB does not have full control over these systems, so we can provide only limited support for the binaries built on them. These binaries no longer are being updated, but the compile options are listed here for reference purposes.
