Problem installing DBD::mysql on a Mac OS X Panther system

I've successfully installed MySQL and the Perl DBI module, but when I
try to install DBD::mysql, it keeps failing like this:

-------------------- (from the CPAN shell) ---------------------
....
chmod 644 mysql.bs
rm -f blib/arch/auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.bundle
LD_RUN_PATH="/usr/lib" /usr/bin/perl myld MACOSX_DEPLOYME NT_TARGET=10.3
cc -bundle -undefined dynamic_lookup -L/usr/local/lib dbdimp.o mysql.o
-o blib/arch/auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.bundle -L/usr/local/mysql/lib
-lmysqlclient -lz -lm
make: *** [blib/arch/auto/DBD/mysql/mysql.bundle] Error 1
/usr/bin/make -- NOT OK
Running make test
Can't test without successful make
Running make install
make had returned bad status, install seems impossible

cpan>
----------------------------------------------------------------

I've been doing a little Perl programming for a while now, but I'm far
from an expert, and I've been relying on simply using whatever was
already installed on my web hosting system, where the DBI and DBD::mysql
modules were pre-installed without me having to do a thing to get them
there.

I don't even have a clue where to start in evaluating what this
installation error is about. I'm just trying to follow instructions that
I've founding Googling around for help on installing Perl packages on a
Mac OS X system, and none of that help covers what to do when an
installation like this fails for God knows what reason.

Help!

I have a binary distribution of MySQL 4.0.20 installed in /usr/local/mysql. Therefore, the only libmysqlclient file I have is libmysqlclient.a (static library). And also, Perl:DBI already installed. I'm trying to install perl-DBD-MySQL-2.9004 from source. What should I add to 'perl Makefile.PL' as arguments to make sure it finds the static library?
