I was hoping someone who knew better would reply. You might need to just
specify to the loader where it is. You see, your older perl might not
have been using the shared library...so it didn't need to know where it
was. You typically will use 'ldconfig -m /path/to/lib/mysql' (as root)
to tell your loader where to find the mysql.so.
Hope this helps. If it does, you'll want to add that directory to your
initialization files (however appropriate for your OS - check the man
page for ldconfig, ld.so, ld; check the startup scripts in /etc).
