I notice #ifdef HAVE_OPENSSL statements all over the mysql sources,
but I don't see any way to set that symbol. The configure script
doesn't do it. If one wants SSL-secured connections, does one manually
hack the Makefile to get the SSL code compiled in?
The reason I ask is that I am looking into hacking mysql to require
client-side certs and use the client's certificate to determine the
mysql login name. If anyone wants to comment on the feasibility of
such an endeavor, please do.
