On Unix use g++ 2.95.2 or 2.95.3. Build mysql++ 1.7.9 from the
sources, with ./configure make.
Then make a Makefile for your project based on the Makefile from
Portability of MySQL++ will pose you no problems at all.
YOu can also download some MySQL 3.23 binaries for your flavour of
Unix, in order to have your program linked and running.
You will have problems with other components you used on Windows, but
not with MySQL nor with MySQL++.
