Description:
As reported in the Debian Bug Tracking system:

It seems that there's a regression between 5.0.27 and 5.0.30 (Enterprise Edition). Some applications fail to build. The source of the problem seems to be a macro that is used in
m_ctype.h and defined in my_global.h. Including my_global.h leads to more compile errors.

How to repeat:
Attached you find a build log for mysql-admin-1.2.5rc. Further build logs are available:

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=403081 (mysql-admin)
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=403082 (mysql-query-browser)

Suggested fix:
In 5.0.27 the macro ATTRIBUTE_FORMAT_FPTR was not used in m_ctype.h...

I've added the patch I've received from a Debian user. It seems to work at least for our current compiler version.

bye,

I would suggest extracting those ATRIBUTE_FORMAT* macros into include/my_attribute.h and then include that file from both m_ctype.h and my_global.h
