Build Instructions

MySQL client library is detected and used automatically. For successful detection of MySQL client library mysql_config program must be installed and available. On some Linux distributions (we observed this on Ubuntu 11.04 x86) and Microsoft Windows automatic configuration facility is unable to detect MySQL client library; in this case you can specify path to shared libraries using --with-mysql-libdir command line switch, for example:

./configure --with-mysql-libdir=/usr/lib"
