Please, have you tried the following?

I wrote in the previous mail that you need to define the path without
the /lib subdir. For example, if you have /blabla/lib/libmysql.dylib,
you need to use:


Hmm, I see your original message:

--- cut ---
checking for mysqlc module... OK
checking for mysql pre-requisites... external Connector/C (libmysql)
checking for libmysqlclient.dylib... configure: error: not found. Please
specify proper path in --with-libmysql-path
--- cut ---

I wonder why it writes libmysqlclient.dylib. I see "libmysql.dylib" in
bootstrap/configure.in (libreoffice-3-4 branch).

Have modified the configure?
Are the messages from another configure script?

Best Regards,
