I want to propose a modification to the mysql source configure script to be able to set the aes key length in parameter to the configure script.

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
here is the code I've add to my configure script to do that: (added on line 536)

--with-aes-key-length=* | --aes-key-length=* | --aes-key=* | --aes=*)
case $ac_optarg in
#128 is already the default value, nothing to do
192 | 256)
source_path=`echo $0 | awk -F "configure" '{print $1}'`
sed -e "s/AES_KEY_LENGTH 128/AES_KEY_LENGTH $ac_optarg/" "$source_path"include/my_aes.h > "$source_path"include/my_aes.h2
mv "$source_path"include/my_aes.h2 "$source_path"include/my_aes.h ;;
{ echo "$as_me: error: invalid aes key length: $aes_key_length (available values are: 128, 192, 256)" >&2
{ (exit 1); exit 1; }; }

don't miss to add the --with-aes-key-length to the --help display :-)
