is that the *first* error you got, or might it be that you got lots of complaints
about missing files long before that? something like, say:
_mysql.c:41:19: mysql.h: No such file or directory
_mysql.c:42:26: mysqld_error.h: No such file or directory
_mysql.c:43:20: errmsg.h: No such file or directory
if so, you simply don't have the mysql client development files on your machine, or
you have them in a location where the setup script cannot find them.
