you are right
i banged on about the problems with qt being built with libmysqlclient
instead on libmysqlclient_r by default in gentoo
on the -dev mailing list until i reckoned people though i had a wetware
never went back and updated the ticket though - i was put off by
comments like "this is not a discussion forum - use the mailing list"
never quite know what i should do - and consequently get it wrong a lot
of the time :-)
