Your shell doesn't know where the MySQL libraries are.

Try this from the commandline and then add to your script;

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/mysql/libl;export 
LD_LIBRARY_PATH

In the long run, you need need to add /usr/local/lib/mysql to 
/etc/ld.so.conf and re-run ldconfig; 'man ldconfig' for more details.
