When using autoconf/autotools for NDBAPI projects i always see compiler warnings like:

  In file included from [...] storage/ndb/ndb_types.h:25,
                   from [...] storage/ndb/ndbapi/ndb_cluster_connection.hpp:20,
                   from [...] storage/ndb/ndbapi/NdbApi.hpp:21,
                   from example.cpp:12:
  [...]my_config.h:994:1: warning: "PACKAGE" redefined
  In file included from example.cpp:10:
  config.h:38:1: warning: this is the location of the previous definition

Obviously the two autotools generated config.h files collide here. 
As i built MySQL from sources on the same box the only conflicts here
are the PACKAGE* and VERSION definitions, but i'm pretty sure that when
using official MySQL packages there'll be more conflicting definitions.

See also bug #2389 "one is not expected to include my_config.h"

How to repeat:
try to compile the attached sample project with 

  configure --with-mysql=/install/prefix/of/mysql-5.1

Suggested fix:
do not include my_config.h anywhere (wasn't done in 4.1 or 5.0 either, so why now all of a sudden?)

assign to acurtis who made the change (when doing "plugin"-stuff)
antony, you can call/irc me if you have questions.

and this needs to be fixed before GA
  or actually asap, as ndbapi is useless in 5.1 currently...
  (unless having entire bk-tree)

also raising prio as it renders ndbapi useless

this also affect this issue...
(and all ndbapi users in 5.1)
