I was able to get it working with these two lines:
g++ -c -o simple1_simple1.o -Ilib
-g -O2 ./simple1.cpp
g++ -o simple1_test simple1_simple1.o
-L/root/testcpp/sources/mysql/mysql++-2.3.2 -lz -lmysqlpp_util
-lmysqlclient -lmysqlpp -lz
However, I still need to update to the newer install anyway to make it
easier to use in the future.
On a side note, it would be nice to have better documentation in the
example files themselves. I had a tough time getting started with the
new classes, especially trying to figure out how mysql++ selects the
database, which I later found out was in util.h, but again, there's
not much commenting. I'm a learn-by-example not a learn-by-reference
kind of person, and the mysql++ documentation is completely
