result in improved security?
If you're actually interested in protecting the installation from
attacks, you might want to get the recently-released book _The
Database Hacker's Handbook: Defending Database Servers_.
It discusses how to break into and therefore how to defend various
database servers including MySQL(tm).
The point of compiling may be one of the smallest points of
vulnerability; numerous vulnerabilities have nothing to do with

Yes, I know that compiling is one of security aspect.
But it is difficult to find any informations from a security aspect
about the process of compilation in case of MySql.
I can found a lot of articles on how-to securise an installed MySql.
A security rule is "install only the necessary".
My question was just to known which rules may I have to follow to build
a "secure" MySql. Is it realy bad to find "security" already at
compilation step ? I think no.
