10.2.7 seems to do the same now (Fedora last night was still on 10.2.6)

Yes, it was https://jira.mariadb.org/browse/MDEV-12423

ok - makes things clearer

+	cmake .. -DWITH_MYSQLCOMPAT=1 ...

frankly do we use now ON/OFF YES/NO or 0/1
that mix all over the base makes me sick

well, "libmysqlclient.so.18" is missing in your upstream compat links
while "libmysqlclient.so" and "libmysqlclient_r.so" gave an error "ln:
failed to create symbolic link 'libmysqlclient.so': File exists" within


pushd %{buildroot}%{_libdir}/mysql/
ln -s libmariadb.so libmysqlclient.so
ln -s libmariadb.so libmysqlclient.so.18
ln -s libmariadb.so libmysqlclient_r.so

I am not sure I understand what you're trying to say.

That besides libmysqlclient.so, there should be libmysqlclient.so.18
symlink? What about libmysqlclient.so.18.0.0?

surely - how else do you imagine software working which is linked against libmysqlclient.so.18? seems not to work at the moment but maybe there is something still missing in my build

ldd /usr/sbin/dbmail-imapd
libmysqlclient.so.18 => not found
