uh, i honestly don't think this should be added, considering this is using
a binary distrobution.  For application like Netscape and such, where we
don't have a choose it makes sense.  But for something as plain as
mysql, which is fairly easy to compile from source, i don't see no
reason to use the binary distrobution.
