It causes the MySQL package to be linked against the libwrap library -
which is used for host access control through the /etc/hosts.allow
mechanism.  For this reason, now you have MySQL built without it, you
should use some other means of controlling where connections are allowed

Check out hosts_access in section 3 of the manual for more details.
