Because they have the same name as the 3.23 files. You can only have 1
binary copy at a given time - unless you want to start juggling with
compiler search paths all the time.

In general I don't recommend using MySQL in FPC. The API fluctuates
too much between minor versions, which can maybe be masked in C
with some macros, but not in FPC.
