problem installing MySQLdb on Solaris 8

I'm trying to install MySQLdb 0.9.2 so I can access my MySQL database from
python under Solaris 8. I found the notes on changing the include and lib
paths and it seems to find them okay, but when I run 'python setup.py
build', I get these errors:

building '_mysql' extension

lib -lmysqlclient_r -lz -o build/lib.solaris-2.8-sun4u-2.3/_mysql.so
ld: warning: file /usr/local/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient_r.a(libmysql.o): wrong

My configuration is:
bash-2.05$ python
Python 2.3.3 (#1, Feb 11 2004, 14:47:54)
[GCC 3.3.2] on sunos5
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
import zlib
zlib.__version__ '1.0' ^D


The server is a Sun Netra T1, which has a 64-bit SPARC in it.

I tried adding '-m64' to the extra_link_args in setup.py, then I removed the
'build' directory and built again, but then I got:
ld: fatal: file build/temp.solaris-2.8-sun4u-2.3/_mysql.o: wrong ELF class:
ld: fatal: File processing errors. No output written to

What do I need to do to get MySQLdb installed on Solaris 8?
