linux% mysqladmin version
mysqladmin  Ver 7.8 Distrib 3.22.20a, for unknown-linux-gnu on powerpc
TCX Datakonsult AB, by Monty

Server version          3.22.20a-log
Protocol version        10
Connection              Localhost via UNIX socket
UNIX socket             /tmp/mysql.sock

It's as easy as ./configure;make;make install.

But you need an up-to-date R4 glibc and egcs.  Those you can get from
Gary Thomas' area at  The exact URL has been given
