This would work for about all lines (LDFLAGS, LIBADD, SUBDIRS, ...) except for 
_SOURCES. AFAIK the reason is that am_edit and other preprocessors are run 
during make -f Makefile.cvs, i.e. _BEFORE_ configure. There's no way they can 
do their work properly with a variable SOURCES line and as such unsermake 
doesn't support it.

As for a solution, one that would work is using a mysql subdir with a 
convenience library as that would avoid a dynamic SOURCES line. I don't know 
anything better, but perhaps one of the build system gurus does.
