Just been trying to rebuild mysql 5.7.1{3,4} on current Fedora rawhide where is gcc 6.1.1.
Compilation seems it fails in myisam support:

How to repeat:
Try to rebuild latest mysql using gcc 6.1.1

Just realised that it may be problem with dirent.h from rawhide glibc.
Opened https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1365576

Looks like it is a bug in mysql 5.7 code.

Please stop using readdir_r, it's completely useless.

Hi Tomasz!

Problem is due to change in glibc 2.24 which contain the following change:

 * The readdir_r and readdir64_r functions have been deprecated.  It is
  recommended to use readdir and readdir64 instead.

See for example for more information:

To reproduce a system with glibdc 2.24 is needed, using GCC 6.1.1 is not enough.
Fedora rawhide (to be Fedora 25) is one such system.

Here is longer comment what needs to be done:

Hist checked 5.7.15 and seems problem still is not solved

BTW seems not fixing this issue has some secutity consequences.

Posted by developer:
Noted in 5.7.17 changelog.

MySQL now uses readdir() rather than readdir_r(). The latter has been
deprecated since glibc 2.24 and caused debug builds of MySQL and
builds using GCC 6.1.1 to fail.

Noted in 8.0.1 changelog.
