Install Mysql from Source on Solaris/Solaris 上从源代码安装Mysql

To prevent the compiling problem with the “gcc: unrecognized option `-KPIC'” error, we can build a copy of gcc-compiled mysql and install the DBI-mysql for Perl or Mysql-Python interface for Python on Solaris.

1. Download GA source code from mysql.com
2. Uncompress it
3. Download “cmake” and “libidn” from sunfreeware.com and use “pkgadd” to add them
4. Then run:
> cmake -D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX:PATH=/opt/mysql -D MYSQL_DATADIR:PATH=/opt/mysql/data .
> make
> make install
You’ll get your own mysql compiling versiong by GCC
