Not sure which extension it is exactly you are talking about and how you 
build it, but -- at least in theory -- configure --without-system-mysql 
--without-system-mysql-cppconn should result in module mysqlc building a 
mysql-connector-ooo.oxt that bundles instances of the mysqlclient and 
mysqlcppconn libraries.
