Didn't we just go over this yesterday? You needed to pass
--with-mysql=/usr/local instead of --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql

In the configure you edited, it's going to be looking for [Whatever you
passed configure for --with-mysql] plus a) lib or b) lib/mysql plus

So when you pass configure --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql and the path is
actually /usr/local/lib/mysql, you're making it look in a)
/usr/local/mysql/lib or b) /usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql

It doesn't find what it's looking for, so it tells you " Cannot find
mysqlclient library under /usr/local/mysql", which is the path you gave
it. The error is sort of misleading because it doesn't report *exactly*
where it looked, but it's correct nonetheless.

You need to pass it /usr/local because that is the correct *base* path. 
Now, after that, if it doesn't configure correctly, that's another story.
