MySQLdb installed, won't connect on OSX

Greetings,

	I am attempting to get MySQLdb 0.9.2 installed on Mac OS 10.2 with a 
Fink distribution of Python 2.2.2.  I have seen only a few posts on the 
subject, some of them relate to "conflicting header files," but I don't 
know what to do about conflicting header files, or where I would find 
them, and once I found them, which ones to remove.

	I have compiled MySQL 4.1 and installed into /usr/local/mysql, but 
since have moved to a Fink package installation or 4.0.13.  Although 
MySQLdb appears to install successfully (I think), I am unable to 
connect when I try, as shown below:

 >>> import sys
 >>> import MySQLdb
 >>> conn = MySQLdb.connect (db = 'mydb', host = 'localhost', user = 
'myuser', passwd = 'mypassword')
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
   File "/sw/lib/python2.2/site-packages/MySQLdb/__init__.py", line 63, 
in Connect
     return apply(Connection, args, kwargs)
   File "/sw/lib/python2.2/site-packages/MySQLdb/connections.py", line 
116, in __init__
     self.converter[types.StringType] = self.string_literal
TypeError: object does not support item assignment
 >>>

	My setup.py file contains the following (although I've tried many 
variations, commenting and uncommenting stuff with no real success):

# include files and library locations should cover most platforms
include_dirs = [
#    '/usr/include/mysql',
#	 '/usr/local/include/mysql',
#    '/usr/local/mysql/include/mysql',
	 '/sw/include/mysql'
     ]
library_dirs = [
#    '/usr/lib/mysql',
#	 '/usr/local/lib/mysql',
#    '/usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql',
	 '/sw/lib/mysql', '/sw/lib'
     ]

This is what happens when I build:

	Any help would be greatly appreciated.
