This mailing list is for MySQL's Connector/C++, but it seems you're 
talking about MySQL++, a different library.  MySQL hosts the mailing 
lists for both projects, but MySQL++'s home is elsewhere:

Its mailing list home is:

> what does "-lmysqlclient" mean ?

That tells the compiler to link to a library called mysqlclient.  It's 
specific to MinGW, and isn't provided as part of MySQL.  The 
instructions for making that library are in README-MinGW.txt within the 
MySQL++ source distribution.

If you have more questions about MySQL++, please take it up on the other 
mailing list.
