Configure option to specify mysql and perl path

I am have a working rt system that I inherited. I want to upgrade it,
but unfortunately this requires updating mysql and perl as well. I would
like to install a parallel setup from tarballs so that I can confirm
that all will work before dumping my working rt system. I downloaded the
new version of rt. I also have a new version of mysql and perl, but I
don’t see a way to specify the paths to these in the configure script
for rt. Is this possible?

RT Administrator and Developer training is coming to your town soon! (Boston, San Francisco, Austin, Sydney) Contact training@bestpractical.com for details.

Be sure to check out the RT Wiki at http://wiki.bestpractical.com

Just modify your PATH so that the right mysql bin is found first.
RT doesn’t use the mysql bin outside of setup.

You might have to point RT at the right database port though.

Thanks, but I tried that before posting. I see --with-db-type=TYPE but
nothing to give the path to the binary to use. There are options fro
specifying DBA, DBNAME, DBUSERm and PASSWORD, but I want something like
MYSQL=’/usr/local/sbin/mysqld’ or something like that. I also see PERL
listed but with no real usage information that I see.
