mysqlimport when called with the -L option for LOCAL INFILE crashes on HP-UX 11.x (pa-RISC)

How to repeat:
mysqlimport  --user=<username> --password=<password> -L --fields-terminated-by="," --fields-escaped-by=\\ dbname  filename.txt

Suggested fix:
in client/mysqlimport.c line 370

    mysql_options(&mysql_connection,MYSQL_OPT_LOCAL_INFILE, (char*) &opt_local_file);

opt_local_file is a my_bool variable (so actualy a char) whereas mysql_options() requires a
pointer to an unsigned int as its parameter. this causes an alignment fault on pa-risc

changing the type of opt_local_file should fix the problem
