File 'sql/mysqld.cc':

The definition of 'static void set_user()' is included in '#ifndef EMBEDDED_LIBRARY', but it is also used outside. As a consequence,
1) an implicit declaration of 'int set_user()' is generated (note different return type!), and
2) the symbol is not found on linking (fatal).

The NDB test build of 4.1.5 cannot proceed due to this error.

How to repeat:
Pull the current source tree of 4.1 and try a build.

Suggested fix:
Either of
a) move the function definition outside of  '#ifndef EMBEDDED_LIBRARY', or
b) move all function uses (two) into such CPP guards.
