OK, I have found the cause. In the Fedora MySQL .spec file:

* Thu Dec 23 2010 Tom Lane <email address hidden> 5.5.8-1
- Update to MySQL 5.5.8 (major version bump). Note this includes removal
  of libmysqlclient_r.so.
- Add a linker version script to hide libmysqlclient functions that aren't
  part of the documented API.

That last entry trimmed out the required part of the API required by mydumper. I assume Mandriva uses this .spec too. I will file a feature request with RedHat to add it back in.
