Bug When Compiling MySQL 5.1 From Source

I just filed a very annoying bug when trying to compile with plugin engines using the 5.1.xx source tarball.

Description

I am trying to test SphinxSE as a plugin instead of getting it statically linked and came across an annoying bug. When using the configure --with-plugins option only once, the engine is statically linked. When using it twice, the first engine is created as a plugin, and the 2nd one is linked statically. Here are a couple of examples:./configure –prefix=/usr/local/mysql-5.1.33 –with-plugins=innobase –with-plugins=sphinx

plugin_innobase_shared_target='ha_innodb.la'   <-- plugin
plugin_innobase_static_target=''
plugin_sphinx_shared_target=''
plugin_sphinx_static_target='libsphinx.a'       <-- static
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql-5.1.33 --with-plugins=sphinx --with-plugins=innobase
~/src/mysql-5.1.33$ egrep "plugin_(innobase|sphinx)" config.log
plugin_innobase_shared_target=''
plugin_innobase_static_target='libinnobase.a'      <-- static
plugin_sphinx_shared_target='ha_sphinx.la'         <-- plugin
plugin_sphinx_static_target=''

 

The bug is filed as Bug #45440.
