Try ‘sudo gem install mysql – --with-mysql-dir=/usr/local/mysql’

[Assumes MySQL is installed in /usr/local]

From an old post by TJ Stankus, try this, it’s always worked for me:

sudo gcc_select 3.3

(this is all one long command)
sudo gem install mysql – --with-mysql-dir=/usr/local/mysql
–with-mysql-include=/usr/local/mysql/include/
–with-mysql-lib=/usr/local/mysql/lib/
–with-mysql-config=/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config
