Try without the "-Afull" part of the command line. Specifying an
output option on the command line overrides output plugins in the

Can you explain the problem in more detail? Did you use the options in
the configure script "--with-mysql=DIR"? Curious, what is it about the
Nusphere installs that "especially sucks"?
