when i was looking at building a windows installer for bugzilla i emailed
mysql for clarification.  the response was that unless the open source
product is licensed as gpl, you're not able to bundle mysql in your
installer.  this was several years ago however.

i suspect they have different licensing terms for distros vs open-source
