This requires a change in configure.in:

be added somewhere? I am not sure how to update that.

In the current CVS versions of 5.0 HEAD and 5.1 it seems to
be fixed:

GRASS 5.1.0-cvs:~/grass51/include > grep G_ask_datum_name ../lib/gis/get_datum_name.c
 * G_ask_datum_name(char *datumname, char *ellpsname)
int G_ask_datum_name(char *datumname, char *ellpsname)

GRASS 5.1.0-cvs:~/grass51/include > grep G_ask_datum_name gisdefs.h
int G_ask_datum_name(char *, char *);

You may want to run
cvs up -dP
in both source code directories.

You have to update 5.0 from CVS, then you get the file.

Thanks for posting the mysql problem,
