Description:
libmysqlclient has a "sha1_result" function.

This generic name makes it hard to compile software packages using an sha1 library with the same name.

See for example
http://dovecot.org/list/dovecot/2005-March/006736.html
http://dovecot.org/list/dovecot/2005-April/006755.html

How to repeat:
download the dovecot from dovecot.org and compile it (mysql support is enabled by default).

Suggested fix:
rename sha1_result to mysql_sha1_result.

This is preventing installation of other applications, could you please rename the function?

Confirm 4.1.18 please, so far we are still adding changelog entries to 4.1.17.
