That works really well. Thanks.

Even under MySQL 5.1, I had to put the library (or, at least, a  
symlink to it) in /usr/local/lib. plugin_dir doesn't appear to make  
any difference.

Tom - could I suggest you replace the current makefile with David's  
one? I won't commit it myself as makefiles are like voodoo to me.
