It does compile, my packages for Mandrake 8.2-9.1 and in cooker contrib
have the mysql plugin. I had to disable the test application for
configure (since it doesn't seem to work for mysql 4.x or later), but it
does compile if you have the relevant development files installed (ie
libmysql-devel on Mandrake, MySQL-devel on Redhat etc).

(note the xml and mysql passdb plugins are in subpackages)

What's wrong with LDAP?
