Description:
In the 5.1.30 universal tarball, the files libmysqlclient.16.0.0.dylib and libmysqlclient_r.16.0.0.dylib are 3-way universal binaries (i386, ppc, ppc64) but the corresponding libmysqlclient.16.dylib and libmysqlclient_r.16.dylib files are i386 only.

In the latest 5.0 universal tarball, these files are all universal (see below).

This problem shows up when trying to build universal applications, for instance with python and MySQLdb adapter. 

Also, is there a reason why the universal binaries are not 4-way, i.e. why isn't arch x86_64 included?

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
Create symlinks for the unversioned paths of the libraries as is commonly done with other OSX and Unix-y libraries, rather than having multiple copies of the file.

Add -arch x86_64 to build 4-way libraries?

Thank you for the report.

Verified as described.

This is corrected in 5.1.32
[24 Feb 2009 21:02] Paul Dubois
Noted in 5.1.32 changelog.

On Mac OS X, some of the universal client libraries were not actually
universal and were missing code for the x86_64 architecture.

Setting report to NDI pending push into 5.0.x/6.0.x.

Revised changelog comment:

On Mac OS X, some of the universal client libraries were not actually
universal and were missing code for one or more architectures.

Noted in 5.0.78 changelog.

Setting report to NDI pending push into 6.0.x.
