That's Correct.

Yeah, first thing is to either copy db_mysql.* to db.* or create a
symlink to db_mysql.* from db.*  Took me a while to figure that part
out. I guess it's not really supported, and there are no docs.  :(

Start with making sure db_mysql is actually compiled in, by doing one of
the above.  Then make sure you've AT LEAST applied the part of the patch
that adds to db_mysql.c.  You MAY not need that, but it doesn't hurt. 
That part of the patch changes the MySQL insert from:
INSERT INTO VPOPMAIL (user,dom) VALUES ("1","2")

I assume some version of MySQL doesn't require the field names on an
insert, but mine does.  (Though I'm not sure why you wouldn't want to
specify that.)

At that point, you can at least do what the example shows - the rest of
my patch adds a field for implementation of using a 'Secret Word'.  So
if you want to use more fields, use the rest of the patch as a guide.
