MySQL Server fails to compile with error messages like:

Linking CXX static library libpartition.a
dtrace: failed to link script /var/ps/mysql-5.5.31/include/probes_mysql.d: No probe sites found for declared provider
ar: cannot open /var/ps/mysql-5.5.31/sql/CMakeFiles/partition.dir/partition_dtrace.o: No such file or directory

gmake[2]: *** [sql/libpartition.a] Error 1

additional info:

dtrace: Sun D 1.11

SunOS 00-1c-42-41-f2-a1 5.11 joyent_20130613T201213Z i86pc i386 i86pc

How to repeat:
Get latest SmartOS image from Joyent, try to compile MySQL

Suggested fix:
Do not invoke `dtrace -G` for plugins which are not instrumented with DTrace. Fix --disable-dtrace option for configure script.

We're also seeing this on the latest SmartOS images and would really appreciate a patch of some kind.
