I'm having a devil of a time installing mysql 3.23.51 on SuSE 8 from the
tarball. I did ./config, then make.

There are the last few lines from make:

 libmysql.c: In function `mysql_real_connect':
 libmysql.c:1325: warning: passing arg 5 of `gethostbyname_r' from
 incompatible pointer type
 libmysql.c:1325: too few arguments to function `gethostbyname_r'
 libmysql.c:1325: warning: assignment makes pointer from integer without a
 make[2]: *** [libmysql.lo] Error 1
 make[2]: Leaving directory
 make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
 make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/perl/downloads/db/mysql-3.23.51'
 make: *** [all-recursive-am] Error 2
