This may sound weird, but: have you ever reported this as a bug against
mysql or gcc? If you experience problems in Debian, the normal route is
to file a bug report. In this case you could even justify making the bug
report "release critical".
I have fill a bug report a long time ago. Indicated solution comes from
this bug report, but it is not fixed in new packages.
If you have not, that would be a great pity as we are now very close to
the release of Etch.
You say that you have seen this "a long time", so there would have been
time to fix it. I'm not sure if there is still time now...
See bug #334339 (wontfix). Bug was reported to mysql dev without
success because dev have said that is a gcc-4.0 bug, not a mysql bug.
Maybe, but I think it is not very difficult to fix the configure.in
script to avoid this bug.
