As I posted a few lines up, it's gcc 2.95.4 ;-)
After I sent the original message, I tried to play around with the
configure variables, and discovered that it only worked by
eliminating the entire
-D_THREAD_SAFE -DHAVE_BROKEN_REALPATH \
group; I tried removing each one individually and it failed each
time with the
checking size of char... configure: error: cannot compute sizeof (char), 77
I've since given up, installed with the exact configure line shown
in the MySQL docs, FreeBSD section, and it worked perfectly, so I'm
worrying about moving my grant tables from 3.23.49 and so forth,
instead of getting Linuxthreads to work....But I'd be happy to try
to get this fixed, especially if it will help others.
