when building MySQL server from source code, the thread-safe client library (libmysqlclient_r) is not built by default; --enable-thread-safe-client must be specified to configure.

How to repeat:
compile source code.  observe that libmysqlclient_r is not built or installed.

Suggested fix:
make --enable-thread-safe-client the default option.  the additional compile time and disk space used by the thread-safe client even when not needed is negligible.
