I have the feeling they really didn't use the "normal" environment to
build the extension. In the build environment the MySQL Connector/C
comes as Deus ex Machina, it's not built, but the extension must include
the three libraries (the uno component, the Connector/C and
Connector/C++ - although they are not linked against each other, they
are loaded at runtime).

As I explained to J├╝rgen, you will only need the SDK + CMake to build
it, so you will be able to play with it :)

I'll let you know when I upload the code to Apache Extras.
