	I confirm that the experimental myodbc works for me against my package. 
Also the last  debdiff was incorrect. New one attached.

	I understand what you are you saying about the extra libraries. The 
extra libraries put there by mysql_config show up as warnings in the 
shlibs stage of the build.

	However I am more comfortable with this approach for now. For the 
following reasons.
1.) I have not fully worked out how to conquer cmake.
2.) The whole issue of MySQL and the libraries needs more work. Symbol 
files for example?
3.) The output now matches what ubuntu generates.

I am quite happy for this bug report to be cloned to tackle thr longer 
term issues.
