Hi :)
Could you copy&paste that to a wiki-page?  Then maybe we could expand it a bit later to cover the 
main platforms so that point&click users like me are less scared of doing it?

How about
Something like that?  Which do you prefer for fitting in with where normal users find guides and 
stuff on the wiki?  I prefer as sub-pages off the Publications page.  

Frankly, as it is build related, it would be better off on the Developer
wiki pages. This is not a user issue, but a developer one, and if you
can't build LO using the developer instructions and some help from the
dev lists, or dev-irc, then there will be no point in even attempting to
build the mysql connector.

Building LO is not "point and click" ;-) Is it available to all, yes,
absolutely, providing you can read instructions (on the dev page), learn
basic usage of "git", grapple with the over-complex option
switches, fumble your way around the build system and have the patience
to wait a long time while potentially the build fails after 27 hours.
Oh, and I forgot to mention the frustration with Windows and Mac builds
copping out on you more frequently than on Linux.

Once you can do that, and survive, and keep your sanity, you can attempt
to build the mysql native connector.
