Please guys, you told me to post this here and it has now been 2 weeks
since after already having been ignored for months.

I know this may not benefit anyone on this list but there are certainly
others who wish to see this fixed. Remember that I was not the one who
created the original MySQL bug report.

It's not a massive change to review and all you really need to
determine is that I haven't broken the regular build. Cross-compiling
was already broken so it's not like I could have made it any worse.
