    I've recently had a client request that I install a specific UDF extension(though not particularly important, the extension is for levenshtein) -- the problem?CPanel compiles MySQL with static libraries.

    I realize I could make my own install of MySQL...and I am certainally more than capable of doing it, but certainally there must be a better way of configuring MySQL without resorting to a new install of it?

    I've tried(unsuccessfully) to modify the CPanel build scripts...but it would help if I knew what I was looking for.

    Any ideas on how to do this?Or should I bite the bullet and make my own custom MySQL install?

    I have a similar problem, but from a end-user perspective. I would like to use a median() UDF in MySQL, something that is certainly needed by more people.
    On my own systems I use the (slightly modified) source code available from in a dynamic library. Perhaps a tip for the cPanel team to include this in their MySQL distribution?
