As of PHP 5.4 the mysql, mysqli and PDO_MySQL will use mysqlnd instead of libmysql if use of libmysql is not explicitly requested when compiling PHP.

libmysql comes with compression and SSL support by default. mysqlnd is using PHP infrastructure and depends on --with-openssl for SSL support and --with-zlib for compression support, see also:

People need to be educated about this.

(Will ask Philip Olson to handle this bug as a member of the MySQL documentation team)
