I am now trying to install barnyard with MySQL 4.0.12 and ran into the
same problem.

But I think I have a fix. In MySQL 4.0 they appear to have changed the
librarie function calls.

If you edit the barnyard config file and change all occurances of
"mysql_connect" to "my_connect" the configuration and compilation
will complete without this error.

I am having a different error when I try to run barnyard, but I don't
think that it's related to this and is going to be the subject of a
different email.
