Compiling issues

P: n/a
I'm having issues compiling php v4.2.2 on Redhat 9.0. The goal
ultimately is to compile in mcrypt support, but that's a bit down the
road from here. I've chased down the dependencies for the configure
options below (I think), but it still won't configure.

It appears to be choking on MySql (v3.23.54). The error I get is
something like:

/usr/bin/ld : cannot find -lmysqlclient

However, /etc/ appears to point to the correct directory:
/usr/bin/mysql, the contents of which are listed below.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Configure options:

--target=i386-redhat-linux-gnu --program-prefix= --prefix=/usr
