IANAL, and I don't speak for any other entity, not even the company I
work for. My informed opinion is, "yes". :)

Yes, as long as you're willing to provide the source code that
produced that DLL to anyone who asks. The exact terms of this
requirement are spelled out in the LGPL.

The MySQL C API is under the GPL, not the LGPL, so it doesn't matter
how you link: your app falls under the GPL unless you buy a commercial
redistribution license from MySQL, Inc.
