Hey these folks

Downloaded latest barynard, beta8.
never had any problem with beta4,5,6 or 7 in the config.

put in into 'clean' directory, did ../configure --enable-mysql

got this:

checking for /usr/local/include/mysql/mysql.h... yes
test: /usr/local/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.so.10: unexpected operator
checking for mysql_connect in -lmysqlclient... no

  ERROR: unable to find mysqlclient library
  checked in the following places

verified that mysql_connect is in headers:

scanner# grep mysql_connect /usr/local/include/mysql/mysql.h
MYSQL *         STDCALL mysql_connect(MYSQL *mysql, const char *host,

from config.log:

configure: failed program was:
#line 2563 "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_connect();

int main() {
; return 0; }
