MyODBC 5.1.6 is not compatible with mysql 5.5.20.

A new release of myodbc is available and should fix this kind of issue. May we consider to package it?

Hi l3on,

As stated in the merge request, Debian experimental has 5.1.10, that seems to fix the FTBFS, so I would sponsor a sync or a merge rather than a new Ubuntu version.
