Hm, that's strange. I did a bit of googling and at least CentOS seems
to have it. It appears the package you are looking for should be called:

I took a look in the commit history[1] and it appears we've made a number
of changes since the 2.4.0 release to make libodb-mysql compatible with
newer versions of MySQL:

I can try to look through the log and point you to the relevant patches
that you could then try to apply to libodb-mysql-2.4.0, but I think you
will have a much better experience going forward if you manage to get your
GCC plugin support sorted and then build the latest 2.5.0 pre-release
based on these instructions:
