I'm trying to set up the MeCab fulltext search plugin for MySQL (5.7.17) on Ubuntu (16.04). However it's missing the libpluginmecab.so file, which is apparently "intentionally missing". I have MeCab, libmecab2 and libmecab-dev installed, so how do I get this working with MySQL?

Edit Since then I managed to acquire libpluginmecab.so from the MySQL community server package, but now it refuses to see the MeCab config file. Getting "/etc/mecabrc not found", while the file is there and readable.
