Hi Lionel,

The problem was solved after a spell in package dependency hell - thanks 
to the packages provided by the MariaDB project :-/

I had removed all of the Ubuntu mysql packages and replaced them with 
the "equivalent" MariaDB DEB packages from the repo that the MariaDB 
project provides. However, the two library sets are not the same, and 
MariaDB's libmariadbclient (including libmysqlclient18 virtual package 
placeholder) and libmariadb-dev packages are not the same so, when one 
tries to remove them, all hell breaks loose.

After much gnashing of teeth, forcibly removing of spurious 
configuration files and debian flag files, I managed to reinstall 
Ubuntu's 13.04 mysql packages. My build is now once again progressing 
with the switches you provided, but I'm staying away from MariaDB until 
that mess gets sorted out.
