Mysql gem on Mac OSX 10.4

Ok so I just installed ruby and rails and everything everything would
work also got a test server working.
I already have mysql installed on my Mac (it’s a macbook pro) now when I
either try to configure my ruby (I don’t know where) or when I try to
install the mysql gem I always get error messages…

Building native extensions. This could take a while…
ERROR: Error installing mysql:
ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.

Gem files will remain installed in
/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/mysql-2.7 for inspection.
Results logged to
/usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/mysql-2.7/gem_make.out

I have Xcode installed obviously but somehow this doesn’t work…

Would be great if you could help!
Thanks!

Traditionally I have to build it using
gem install mysql – --mysql-config=/whatever/mysql_config5 # or
wherever your msql config binary is
