Quick and dirty solution:

root# ln -s /usr/local/mysql/lib/libmysqlclient.so.12 

Alternatively, depending on your platform you need to edit the 
ld.so.conf file, so your operating system knows where to look for 

In linux this is /etc/ld.so.conf, in the BSD's it's usually in 
/etc/rc.conf (or /etc/defaults/rc.conf), not sure what it is on solaris 
off the top of my head.

I usually use the symlink trick when I run into that issue, solves the 
problem quickly.
