Can not install mysql-binding


Hi all
I cannot install native MySQL-binding on my iMac G5 using OSX 10.4.4, ie
“sudo gem install mysql – --with-mysql-dir=/usr/local/mysql”
fails with :
Attempting local installation of ‘mysql’
Local gem file not found: mysql*.gem
Attempting remote installation of ‘mysql’
Updating Gem source index for:
Building native extensions. This could take a while…
*** extconf.rb failed ***
Could not create Makefile due to some reason, probably lack of
necessary libraries and/or headers. Check the mkmf.log file for more
details. You may need configuration options.
The mkmf.log’s first part:
iMac:/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/mysql-2.7 gunnar$ more mkmf.log
find_library: checking for mysql_query() in -lmysqlclient…

Is there anything I can do to make it install OK?
