Wow, you just won a "Offend your maintainer" award of the week. So
from now unless some other maintainer picks this bug you're on your

As a courtesy to other people interested in using mysqlnd, here's the
howto build it on your own. But be aware, this is as much support as
you get, bugs in mysqlnd should be reported straight to PHP and if the
howto below will not work, you're on your own.

apt-get install php5-dev
cd /tmp
apt-get source php5
cd  /tmp/php5-5.3.6/ext/mysqlnd
mv config9.m4 config.m4
sed -ie "s{ext/mysqlnd/php_mysqlnd_config.h{config.h{" mysqlnd_portability.h
cd /tmp/php5-5.3.6/ext/mysql
./configure --with-mysql=mysqlnd
make && make install
cd /tmp/php5-5.3.6/ext/mysqli
./configure --with-mysqli=mysqlnd
make && make install
