3.23.x doesn't need patches at the source.
I had many problems relibtoolizing, so ended up building the DLL's
manually (works also fine). I have my old 3.23.43 build online (static
libs only, including the server, it still is running well on very old
Cygwin DLL's, say pre 1.3.12, IIRC it was compiled with 1.3.10, and also
is running on 1.5, besides the fact that it fails 7 from 8 tests. The
failings are randomly, one time the first test succeeds, anther time the
second and so on.
I would send you the URL on request in PM.
4.0.x is still a mess regarding libtoolizing with newer libtool and
newer autotools than they used at MySQL.com, 4.1.x was the first release
which makes no problems with the build tools and only minor problems
with the sources.
