Hi Petr,

First, thanks for trying to help me sort this out.

Yes, I tried this already, but it still didn't work.

That is, as I said in my initial post, because on Mac at least (don't
know about other platforms), the file that configure searches for, i.e.
libmysql.dylib does not exist. A "locate libmysql.dylib" returns no
answers, nor does a "find /usr -name libmysql.dylib.

So I edited configure.in to ask for the correct file name, hence the
different message.
