the problem i actually ran into when building UDFs/plugins was that
for the things that were set by extending CFLAGS and friends only
it is hard to determine whether the flag was set when the server
was compiled or not, at least for those plugin types that should
only need public header files and not the full server code.
I ran into issues with that with either SAFEMALLOC or SAFE_MUTEX
(or both), so right now i have the following snippet in my code
generator for plugins:
// TODO configure should take care of this
simply assuming that all debug servers were built with these
Thinking again just having AC_DEFINE entries for these (and
EXTRA_DEBUG) would be sufficient though so that these settings
could just be taken from the public my_config.h instead of
'Real' configure options would still be nice so that the
existence of these options is documented in "configure --help"
output though ...
