This is great.  It is indeed working quite nicely now after I installed 
those packages and recompiled.  Thank you so much for this.  It will 
make my life a LOT easier, preparing reports and stuff (which I will do 
from Openoffice Base now).

Can the configure step somehow be finetuned to detect the missing libs 
and abort if --enable-dbi was given?  I also think the menu entry "File 
- Database Connection" is present whether or not that flag is given. 
Shouldn't it be only available when the switch was turned on?

Are you sure that Umlauts and other non-ASCII characters are correctly 
saved in MySQL?
