My configure/compilation script is:
CC="cc -pthread"
export CC
CXX="cxx -pthread -O"
export CXX
cd $D
./configure \
        --with-named-thread-libs="-lpthread -lmach -lexc -lc"\
I get this error in the output of the configure, but it goes on and
compiles with user as root instead of mysql as I specified in my script.
Remember to check the platform specific part of the reference manual for
hints about installing MySQL on your platform. Also have a look at the
files in the Docs directory.

Thank you for choosing MySQL!

./do4[14]: --with-mysqld-user=mysql:  not found
cd libmysql; gmake link_sources
gmake[1]: Entering directory `/src/net/db/mysql/mysql-4.0.13/libmysql'

As you can see, I only copied part of it.


How to repeat:
This happens each time I run the above mentioned script.

Sorry, but the bug system is not the appropriate forum for asking
support questions. Your problem is not the result of a bug.

Thank you for your interest in MySQL.

I couldn't find where else to put this. It looked like a bug in the
configure section, since it did not assign the correct owner for the
mysql daemon process like it id in 3.x. Since I did not see a section
for configuring, where would I post this? Thanks - Douglas

Just take a closer look at your compilation script - it obviously misses a backslash after 
the "--prefix=$H" line...
