Saw a post a few days ago by Zeddy Chirombe regarding this error while
I had the same error earlier today and wanted to share the solution.
checking for MySQL library directory... /usr/lib/mysql
checking for MySQL include directory... /usr/include/mysql
checking for mysql_store_result in -lmysqlclient... no
configure: error: Could not find working MySQL client library!
You're building with MySQL 5.0 installed on your system. you need to use
4.1, as it says on http://tangentsoft.net/mysql++/
The build is looking for /usr/lib/libmysqlclient.so.14 ******
and with mysql 5.0 you'd have /usr/lib/libmysqlclient.so.15.***** and
though i tried, no amount of symlinks would fool mysql++ config script.
