this is the same stupidity as happened with MySQL 5.5.10
forced to rebuild any against libmysql linked binary

if a company manages *twice* release a new major version
while claim the ABI is compatible and break the never
existed compatibility months later with a minor update
their responsible release-managers has to be fired!
______________________________

MySQL 5.5.10:
Incompatible Change: The shared library version of the client library
was increased to 18 to reflect ABI changes, and avoid compatibility
problems with the client library in MySQL 5.1. Note that this is an
incompatible change between 5.5.10 and earlier 5.5 versions, so
client programs that use the 5.5 client library should be recompiled
against the 5.5.10 client library. (Bug #60061, Bug #11827366)
