After extracting mysql, moving it into /usr/local/src, cding into it and then doing :


./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql \--localstatedir=/usr/local/mysql/data \--disable-maintainer-mode \--with-mysqld-user=mysql \--enable-large-files \--without-comment \--without-debug \--without-docs \--without-bench



i get the following error: (not allowing me to complete configure)
