When mysql-connector-C++ is installed and available in the system, please provide an option to use the system version instead of the bundled copy.

Note in library/dbc/src/driver_manager.cpp there is a dynamic load of libmysqlcppconn.so which is not part of the system mysql-connector-c++ (but part of mysql-connector-c++-devel, per packaging Guildelines)

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
Avoid using the g_module_open, especially because MW is already linked against mysql-connector-c++, so this don't make much sense.

Add a build option as for ctemplate.

Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL Workbench 6.0.2 public beta release, and here's the changelog entry:

"´╗┐Connector/C++" is no longer bundled with MySQL Workbench.

Thank you for the bug report.
