It's probably worth noting that some of these failures also affect other
architectures and are RC bugs; thus, they won't ship with *any* architecture
in sarge unless they're fixed. :-)

I'm not going to give this a high priority, personally; all my reasons for
adding this package in the first place have since been addressed by the
upstream licensing fixes, so anything still using it is of fairly limited
use (especially with the protocol incompatibilities with MySQL 4.1).

RC bug, definitely fixed one way or another as soon as glibc is unstuck.

A package with historical 64-bit issues, and not much of a use case in
modern envs, AFAICT; seems unlikely to be fixed.
