[Pdns-users] Configure/Compile problem

I am trying to compile the source package for PDNS 2.9.19 and am not able to 
get past the configuration stage for the mysql library.

I am running on Fedora Core 4, gcc 4.0.2, and MySQL 4.1.14. I am currently 
using the static RPM package from the download site but this is not working 
very well. The master/slave notifications repeatedly crash with a signal 11 
error for no apparent reason.

When I try to run the configure script, this is what I get:

[samson at boralis: ~/pdns-2.9.19] ./configure --enable-recursor 
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for style of include used by make... GNU
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether we should build static binaries... 
checking whether we will be building the server... yes
checking whether we will be building the recursor... yes
checking for MySQL library directory... configure: error: Didn't find the 
mysql library dir in '/usr/lib/mysql/lib/mysql /usr/lib/mysql/mysql 

The configure script will not accept any variation on the Mysql library 
directory and I don't know why. Is it looking for something I don't have? Or 
is this program not compatible with MySQL 4.1?
