php compile error for mysql support

Hey guys,

I was compiling php 5.1.4 and during the process of adding mysql support I get a the error below. I have search quite a bit and can't seem to find a resolution. Any help from you all will be greatly appreciated.

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lmysqlclient
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
configure: failed program was:
#line 58781 "configure"
#include "confdefs.h"
/* Override any gcc2 internal prototype to avoid an error. */
/* We use char because int might match the return type of a gcc2
builtin and then its argument prototype would still apply. */
char mysql_error();

int main() {
; return 0; }

Thank you,

I think this is where your error is. It appears that the mysqlclient libraries cannot be located. When you configured php, did you give the right location for the mysql libs?
