[JDEV] Building jabberd-2.0rc1: MySQL Path?

Thanks for your help! I don't have a libmysqlclient.so file in my MySQL 
installation, just libmysqlclient.a and libmysqlclient_r.a files. I 
installed MySQL from a package file - maybe it didn't include this 
file? Is there a way to build it from the files I have, or do I need to 
build MySQL from source?

This all seems very complex to me - I would think jabberd would just 
require some options in config.xml to use a database. Will I have to 
rebuild jabberd each time I switch databases?
