4.4.7 ./configure Emulation

The legacy (Autotools) way to build MySQL on Unix was to run this command:

BUILD/; ./configure lots of options; make

That may still work. However, ./configure created by ./BUILD/ is just a wrapper that translates old-style Autotools options to new-style cmake options. The script is neither perfect nor supported. It is meant to be a temporary solution for those who need time to rewrite ./configure based scripts to native CMake.

Instead of running BUILD/, you can invoke ./cmake/ directly.
