Description:
After using --without-server option to configure, build fails in tests directory: 

gmake[2]: Entering directory `/usr/local/src/mysql-5.0.7-beta/tests'
gmake[2]: *** No rule to make target `../mysys/libmysys.a', needed by `mysql_client_test'.  Stop.

How to repeat:
use configure --without-server on 5.0.7-beta source

Suggested fix:
fix the dependency so the library the tests need get built or disable the building of the tests if --without-server is chosen

Fixed in 5.0.13.

Noted in 5.0.12 changelog. (This fix was moved to the
5.0.12 build clone.)

I have to correct / revoke the above entries:
1) The original fix worked in tests, but caused problems in the release process and had to be revoked.
2) This was not spotted for manual and announcement, so the claim of the bug to be fixed is wrong.
3) The final solution is not yet finished, so even 5.0.13 will still contain the problem.
I am sorry about the confusion, please accept my apologies.

I am now working on a better solution, but have no good ETA yet.
