An error occurred while linking the DBD::mysql driver. The error
message seems to indicate that you don't have a lib$missing.a,
or a lib$ There are a few ways to resolve this:
1) You may try to remove the -lz or -lgz flag from the libs list
by using the --libs switch for "perl Makefile.PL".
2) On Red Hat Linux and SUSE Linux, install the zlib-devel package
(sometimes called libz-devel)
3) On Debian and Ubuntu, install the zlib1g-dev package
4) On other systems, please contact the mailing list
For further hints, see INSTALL.html, section Linker flags.
