That's what the mysql_config script is for:

tim@cane:~$ mysql_config       
Usage: /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config [OPTIONS]
        --cflags        [-I'/usr/local/mysql/include/mysql']
        --libs          [ -L'/usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql' -lmysqlclient   -lz -lcrypt 
-lm ]
        --socket        [/tmp/mysql.sock]
        --port          [3306]
        --version       [3.23.30-gamma]
tim@cane:~$ mysql_config --libs
 -L'/usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql' -lmysqlclient   -lz -lcrypt -lm

I'm not sure what the best way to use it in PHP is, but hopefully
someone familiar with ext/mysql/config.m4 could fix that.  If not,
let me know and I'll try to look at it some time.
