The DBD::mysql driver (like most other database drivers) consists of
two parts: A Perl part and a C part.
If you aren't using ActivePerl (which isn't working with mod_perl,
you either need a precompiled binary of DBD::mysql or you must compile
your own - and hence you need a C compiler. (The DBD::mysql docs tell
what to do.) The C compiler must be the same that was used for compiling
Perl. VC++ is not a must: You can compile Perl with egcs. The
of the Perl source distribution contains more details.
A precompiled binary of Perl 5.00502, including DBD::mysql, is
available at www.mysql.com.
