No big surprise there: you're probably the first to try it. You're
certainly the first to try it and then report what happened. Xcode
support is something we're just supposed to get for free from
Bakefile, but clearly it needs more work. I imagine most Mac OS X
users of MySQL++ are building from the command line. I know I am.

The link flag needs to be -lmysqlclient. Unixy linkers assume the

Sure it does. Perhaps you haven't yet read README-examples.txt?

I don't know what's going on here. Wild guess: you're using the wrong
build options in your project, differing in some key way from the way
the library is built, so that the RTL crashes when you try to call
across the boundary.
Try the examples first. Once you prove to yourself that the code can
work, you can work on building something functional through Xcode.

Surely if the library was so horribly broken that you can't even
construct a Query object, someone would have reported it by now.
