the DBD::mysql manpage lists this syntax also
$dsn = "DBI:mysql:test;mysql_read_default_file=/home/joe/my.cnf";

If that works, you may be able to change RT::Handle::BuildDSN in  
local/lib to do the right thing.
We'd also appreciate some sort of patch if that works.

RT runs with local/lib first in @INC, so that should work if needed.
Of course, it might be better to get a patch submitted and an  
official release to support what you need.
