hassium-bash /appl/mysql/mysql-gui-tools-5.0r2/mysql-administrator # 

How to repeat:
Perform configure then make using gcc-4.1.1 on Solaris 10.

Suggested fix:
Remove -xstrconst and -mt from Makefiles.

Thank you for the report.

Could you please try using current 5.0-r3 sources accessible from http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/gui-tools/5.0.html?

-xstrconst is no longer a problem, HOWEVER, the configure script now wrongly detects the -arch=v8 setting and sets a value of v8 which is incorrect for the platform.

In addition, -mt continues to exist in all the Makefiles and is incorrect causing build failure.

Additionally, an optimize value of -xO3 is used which is incompatible with gnu gcc-4.1.1.  Correct value is -O3.

This bug remains unresolved as of 5.0r4.

Hi

This is actually a problem with the mysql-config script in Solaris. 
The engineering team will be fixing this problem at some time, but in the meanwhile you can workaround by editing that script and removing the 
invalid compiler flags.

I'll recategorize and unassign this as there's nothing else we can do from 
the GUI team.

So, looks like we have a verified mysql_config bug here.

Was this ever fixed? Seems similar to existing bug with perl DBD::mysql

This is actually not about "mysql_config". Documentation may have said differently in the past, but now clearly states that "mysql_config --cflags" is tied to the specific compiler that was used when the MySQL client library was created.

For using the MySQL client shared libraries, "mysql_config --includes" is preferable, that will not add compiler specific flags to the compile/link line. See

  http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.1/en/mysql-config.html

Keeping this bug report open, as the source for the client tool in question might need to be updated to reflect this.
