Note the remark from "monty": If compilation fails due to compiler
errors like:
	"internal error"
	"Out Of mem"
one should use the --low-memory flag for configure. I have about 500
(!!!) Meg
swap (on a HP UX 10.20 machine) but compilation failed. After disabling
the "-O"
it all compiled and MySQL seems stable. Actually this configure option
described in CH17 from the Manual.
