[Snort-users] barnyard configure problem

I am trying to configure barnyard with mysql and the configure script is
complaining about not being able to find mysql_connect. 

This is the specific message I get from
./configure --with-mysql-includes=/usr/local/mysql/include
--with-mysql-libraries=/usr/local/mysql/lib --enable-mysql :

checking for /usr/local/mysql/include/mysql.h... yes
checking for mysql_connect in -lmysqlclient... no

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

Being curious, I did an ar -t on libmysqlclient.a and did not find any
reference to mysql_connect, either in that library or any of the others
in the mysql lib dir.

Any light to be shed?
