On my debian boxes I can easily get this value from /usr/bin/mysql_config --plugindir when building a MySQL UDF library. However on Redhat this option does not appear to be a flag on the mysql_config binary so it just errors.

MySQL on Redhat is at 5.0.77 and on Debian it is at 5.1.37 so perhaps this could also be the cause?

I am unsure and it is the last problem halting a completed build. Any ideas of how I can obtain this value or get Redhats mysql_config to return the right thing?


The answer is no. MySQL did not support plugins until 5.1.
