I'll probably release a new .tar.gz soon so this will work out of the box on x86_64

the patch I just posted (Rudd-O at Rudd-O dot com) may seem silly, but it's the only solution I could find in a short timeframe that would let it compile and build properly on x86_64 and I'm using it now.

sorry about the lameness!

Note this line in acinclude.m4 in nss-mysql-1.0:


This assumption is wrong, because for x86_64, mysql is in /usr/lib64 for example. It seems unfortunate, but the only way I see is to use

  MYSQL_LIB=`mysql_config --libs | grep -Eo '(^|[[:space:]])-L[^[:space:]]+'`


  MYSQL_LIB=`mysql_config --libs | grep -Po '(^|\s+)-L\S+'`
