Compiling MariaDB with Vanilla XtraDB
Sometimes, one needs to have MariaDB compiled with Vanilla XtraDB. This page describes the process to do this. The process is rather crude, as my goal was just a once-off compile for testing (that is, not packaging or shipping) purposes.
The process is applicable to MariaDB 5.3.4 and XtraDB from Percona Server 5.1.61.
