Seem's like it can't find libmysql, which probably implies that the
barnyard2 you have is compiled with mysql support.

You might want to check for that shared lib on your system else you
might want to try to install the appropriate package
that comes with your distro that contain the file or compile mysql for
your plateform and that should install he missing libs.
