I would much prefer to use the MySQL method and I would really prefer to

compile this for my system directly?
Yes, the source is available from the Sarge and Sid repositories. If you
place suitable "deb-src" lines in your /etc/apt/sources.list, you can
download the source this way:
apt-get source libapache2-mod-auth-mysql
That should unpack the source in a directory under the current directory
and apply the standard Debian patch to it. You should then go into that
directory and read the README, INSTALL and "./configure --help" data to
find out how to configure and install your new Apache module.
However, you'll probably need to get the build dependencies before you
build the module, and that can be trickier. Presumably, this should do it:
apt-get build-dep libapache2-mod-auth-mysql
I hope this helps you.
