If you have a similar Linux distribution at home, simply build the mysql 
extension on that machine and then copy it to the web server.

Otherwise:

You don't have to actually install it. Just make sure that Setup.py 
finds the headers and libs

1a) get the rpm and extract the files

or 1b) compile (but don't install) mysql from sources

2) specify the locations of the header files and the libs to Setup.py or 
patch the module such that the defaults point to your directories. From 
your error message, the current default for the includes seems to be 
/usr/local/mysql/include/mysql

3) You can then delete the directories created in 1a or 1b
