Failed to determine directory of mysql.h. Use

perl Makefile.PL --cflags=-I<dir>

to set this directory. For details see the INSTALL.html file,
section "C Compiler flags" or type

perl Makefile.PL --help
Running make test
Make had some problems, maybe interrupted? Won't test
Running make install
Make had some problems, maybe interrupted? Won't install


So, the problem is "failed to determine directory of mysql.h". I've
found advice for this problem before that said download the client code
for mysql from mysql.org. I've done this and unpacked it (outside of
cygwin), but the same problem: I presume that I have to tell perl/cpan
installer about where mysql.h is? I read somewhere that you add the
containing folder to the PATH variable, but this didn't help....
thanks!
