A.1.33 The support-files Directory

Files used to build MySQL on different systems.

The files here are for building ("making") MySQL given a package manager, compiler, linker, and other build tools. The support files provide instructions and switches for the build processes. They include example my.cnf files one can use as a default setup for MySQL.
