Description:
Early on in the build process, the top-level Makefile builds the "do_abi_check" target. This target requires include/mysql_version.h, which is created by the autotools commands that precede a "make". But if you run "make clean", mysql_version.h is removed and a subsequent "make" fails.

The reason for the failure is that mysql.h includes mysql_com.h, which depends on mysql_version.h here:

#if MYSQL_VERSION_ID >= 50000
  KILL_QUERY= 254,
#endif

If mysql_version.h is not available, no KILL_QUERY line appears in the output that results when gcc processes mysql.h, and a diff failure occurs:

make[2]: *** [do_abi_check] Error 1

How to repeat:
BUILD/compile-pentium  # this succeeds
make clean
make                   # this fails

Suggested fix:
mysql_version.h has to be created prior to do_abi_check.

The following patch fixes the problem, but it's probably best classed as a crude hack rather than the correct fix:

Thank you for the report.

Verified as described.

include/mysql_version.h is generated from ./include/mysql_version.h.in 
during the configure stage. Since configure built this header it should
ideally be cleaned up during the distclean phase, as mentioned here 

http://www.gnu.org/software/automake/manual/html_node/Clean.html#Clean. 

In our case doing a make clean cleans up this header.

The following patch seemed to fix this problem.

      Bug#39571 abi_check Does not create all prerequisites
      
      The abi_check target instroduced as part of WL#4380 verifies
      changes to mysql.h. mysql.h in turn includes mysql_version.h.
      mysql_version.h is a file that is generated during the configure
      phase. We must ensure that mysql_version.h is cleaned only during
      distclean and not during clean.

I am still having this problem in trying to compile mysql 5.1.30 on a Kubuntu Amd64 box. Is there a more recent, patched version? If not, can anyone explain to a complete non-developer how to apply the patch mentioned in the thread?

Hello All,

Still having the bug on a Solaris 10 compil (with gcc 3.4.3) and sources 5.1.30
When I try to apply the patch, it seems allready applied !
Any infos ?

thanks

Fix will appear in 5.1.31 and 6.0.9 per discussion with VN.
[8 Dec 2008 14:54] Sergei Golubchik
To users who cannot compile 5.1.30 (as the fix will first appear in 5.1.31) -
the most simple workaround is to run 

  make -C include

That is, if your top-level 'make' fails, run the command as above, and repeat the top-level 'make'.

Noted in 5.1.31, 6.0.9 changelogs.

The do_abi_check program run during the build process depends on
mysql_version.h but that file was not created first, resulting in
build failure.

I'm seeing this problem on GNU/Linux with 5.1.31, 5.1.36, and 5.4.1. 

Using:

./BUILD/autorun.sh
./configure
make
