configure adds rules to sql/share/Makefile that use the $^ directive 
which is a GNU make extension.

The use of $ directives for source and target is not consistent in 
these rules anyway so i suggest to replace $^ with the real source
file name

How to repeat:
try to compile mysql using a non GNU version of make

Suggested fix:
don't use $^ in make rules
