    If I want to recompile mysql by hand, what directories do i need to specify during configure time? ie. db location, state file location etc. (this is on a freebsd 5.2.1 system btw) The reason I ask is that I am attempting to enable long user name support, and from my understanding the reason for the limitation is that mysql breaks with > 16 char usernmaes, so I'm recompiling mysql with 255 character usernames and then going to enable longuser in cpanel to see if anything else is broken.
