I prefer people to build from source, too. The binaries are provided
only as a limited-value convenience.

That should work just fine. I do that to avoid name clashes, since many
of the headers in MySQL++ have pretty generic names.

One doesn't patch the configure script. It's a generated file. You
want to look at configure.in, which is the 'input' file here. See the
section beginning on line 23.
You may not have to patch configure.in at all, but instead just give the
--with-mysql-lib and --with-mysql-include flags to configure. Say
configure --help for details.
