rebuild of mysql 5.5?

yes, built 5.5 a month ago, only today rebuilt postfix (upgraded 2.7.2 to 2.8.0)
This is a common problem, google fu indicates others have same problem, some of them claim reverting to 5.5.7 corrects this error, there was major changes from 5.5.7 to 5.5.8, but I don't see the sense in downgrading to what was regarded as unstable mysql version to correct it. just as well this is on a dev testbed and not production, more of a reason production will stay on 5.1 I think.

I also make my own source-builds with optimized flags but not dumb
configure & make, the better way is to build clean distro-packages
and install them with the package-manager, this way you would

I totally disagree. but thats the beauty about open source, each to their own.

when there is only one version of the lib installed it should not be an issue, I've been building tarballs for 20 years, so do understand  how the OS works and how to best use configure :)
