I didn't try 1.3.2b1, but b2 has a linking problem on Mac OS X.
Somehow an extra 'ar x' step is added for linking in static libraries
(ie libmysqlclient.a). And ar apparently doesn't like a fat
(universal) static library.
I poked around in libtool, and it seems to have something to do with
the convenience libs and whole_archive_flag_spec -
whole_archive_flag_spec is not set now, in 1.3.1 it's "-all_load \
$convenience" for darwin. Without whole_archive_flag_spec, static
libs go thru the 'ar x' thing.
After setting (hacking) whole_archive_flag_spec="-all_load \
$convenience" (in the CXX tag section) in libtool, it works again.
The new way would probably work with the default mysql binaries for
Mac OS X - they're single-architecture static libs.
