I ran the instructions as printed adding -plugin-sql-mysql and it did not 
build for me.  Indications are that the -no-webkit option may have caused 
that.  I'm rerunning without -no-webkit, but have to go to class.  I'll 
tell you results in about 6 hours when I get back.


OK, I meant to send this 6 hours ago but didn't press 'Send'.  The rebuild 
was successful so if -plugin-sql-mysql is added, we must remove -no-webkit
