The 'lib' prefix is automatically added by the linker, so that is not
necessary. The problem is more likely one of the following:
- The directory with the library is not in the linker path;

- The mysql-devel package is not installed on your system.
  Either install this package or make a symbolic link from
  (replace xx.yy with the actual version number of the installed library)
