This is a strange one.  I've seen this before, and if I remember  
correctly, the problem is that database applications, for whatever  
reason, are linked to the Valentina external on Mac Classic.  Whether  
you're building for Valentina or not.  There is a bug report on it,  
though I don't have the number handy.

The workaround is to build your standalone with Valentina support as  
well as MySQL support.  The part I can't remember is if it's  
necessary to include the Valentina library with your standalone or  
not.  You may have to experiment with that.

Hopefully this'll help you get things figured out.
