Mysql configured with --with-raid option does not build. Build breaks on linking with raid.o file.

How to repeat:
configure with --with-raid option, then try to build.

Compiling with RAID can be a bit tricky, as the RAID code is written in C++
which can result in problems during the linking stage. Have you tried to compile
it by using "CXX=gcc"? That should resolve the problem. 

If not, we would need more details to resolve this - please post the exact configure line and the error message you receive.

There was not any C++ compiler excepting g++ on the computer.

Thanks for the info, but that does not really answer my question - did you try to compile it 
with CXX="gcc"? This should resolve the linking problem you were facing. gcc is capable of compiling 
C++ code, too.

I've now added a hint to our manual about this problem:


Please let me know, if this resolves the problem for you, too.

The use CXX=gcc helps. Thanks.
