Please show me the output of:
 mysql_config --variable=pkglibdir

It should say "/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu", but it seems that on your
machine it says "/usr/lib". Are you doing anything remotely out of the
ordinary, like e.g. using a chroot, a different MySQL development
package than the Ubuntu one, ...?

To try to debug the mysql_config script, show me the (stderr) output of:

 bash -x mysql_config --variable=pkglibdir

To work around the issue, you can in LibreOffice's,
replace the line
            LIBMARIADB_PATH=$($MARIADBCONFIG --variable=pkglibdir)
but in the end, I'd like to get to the bottom of the problem and solve
it :)
