Using Mysql User Defined Functions

I’d like to use “Geocalc,” a set of MySQL functions I downloaded. I’ve compiled the source and now have a file called According to this resource, I need to “copy it into a directory where MySQL can find it.” Then I need to execute the query CREATE FUNCTION [function] RETURNS [whatever] SONAME “”;

Is there any way for me to get this to work myself or do I need administrative intervention?

Thanks for your help,
