Chances are you're missing some of the MySQL libraries; either 
libmysqlclient.so or mysql.so.

MySQL AB changed the license of MySQL in a way that meant that PHP couldn't 
bundle the necessary libraries. MySQL AB made an exception for PHP later on 
(around March 2004) so support should re-appear.

Alternatively, stick to the standard distribution packages for PHP and 
MySQL, rather than rolling your own.
