To any interested parties trying to use RDacity: 

Matthew has been trying to compile this version of Audacity and I wanted to try 
and give people a heads up 
if you are trying to build in in Linux. May be able to save you some time. 

This first hurdle I usually get is unable to find mysql.h. 

I remember having to get over that hurdle, and in my digging around I found 
that my Linux environment (Ubuntu) had the flags in them for that. 
Been a while since I built Audacity in this envionment, so please bear with 

Probably a way to get configure to find these, but at the time my understanding 
of configure was very minimal (probably still is...) 
I added them into my .bashrc file so whenever I logged into a shell they were 

export CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/include/mysql" 
export LIBS="-lmysqlclient" 

My environment was defined this way - your mysql development include / library 
may be defined differently... 
I am also assuming you installed libmysqlclient-dev onto your system. 
If you have installed it then the command line mysql_config command can tell 
you where those are. 

By typing 
"mysql_config --cflags" tells you where the CPPFLAGS should be set to 
and then 
"mysql_config --libs" tells you where the librarys are. The LIBS directive 
usually knows where this lives 
but needs the name i.e. "LIBS=-lmysqlclient". 

All this being said, I am guessing you downloaded and compiled the 
rivendell-c-api library. You will need to also 
have that in the CPPFLAGS and LIBS directive. 

You will ALSO need the LIBCURL libraries installed, and it needs to be able to 
find them as well. 
So - another CPPFLAG and LIBS directive probably. LibCurl is neccessary to 
compile rivendell-c-api 
so you must build this BEFORE building rivendell-c-api. 

As I said - I haven't build this in Linux in awhile, and I have never built 
this version (with the three 
libraries) in Linux at all - only windows. So................happy hunting.
