Build switches for mysql connector extension - Mac OSX

I used to be able to build a functional mysql connector on MacOSX by
using the build switch :
However, the inclusion of a build-time downloaded libmariadb library was
stopped after this caused crashes on Window
If you run the above switch now on OSX, you get the following message :
libmariadb is known to be broken as of 2013-10; use libmysqlclient
and configure stops without completing.
So the million dollar question now is : which switch is to be used now ?
On my Linux systems, I don't seem to have any problem building the
connector extension, I imagine because libmysqlclient is included on the
machines in question (because I'm running mysql client and server),
along with libmysqlcppconn.
However, on Mac OSX, these are not included by default. I have
downloaded the MySQL C connector library source, and also have a copy of
libmysqlcppconn for OSX, but how do I tell autogen.sh to use them ?
I have tried using :
and removing the --enable-ext-mariadb-connector
but if I do this, the connector fails to get built. I see a mysql
connector directory in the extensions directory, but it doesn't contain
any of the libs and isn't assembled into an OXT, unlike say, NLPSolver.
I suspect this is due to the externalisation of these extensions.
