I have run into this as well building on Sun Solaris 8 (Sparc) using gcc
3.3.2. The link fails because the linker cannot locate libm when
building the test program that checks for mysql_store_result.

It seems that the LIBS variable initially contains -lm but wipes it out
at line 6438 of the config script. I got around the problem by changing
line 6438 from:




I did no further investigation but it would be nice to not have to hack
the config script.

Configure is telling you that it's unable to link a trivial program to
your C API library.  Therefore, your C API library is questionable.

Do you have a good reason for using a nonstandard version of MySQL? 
(It's clear you're not just installing a pre-built version here.)

ld is skipping it, not configure.

One cannot make further guesses without knowing details of your
