Interesting, since on hilbert, I get all the way through configure and 
compile (though untested), with,

[bancroft@hilbert w3c-libwww-5.4.0]$ ./configure --with-ssl --with-mysql
[bancroft@hilbert w3c-libwww-5.4.0]$ rpm -qi mysql-devel

Summary     : Files for development of MySQL applications.
Description :
MySQL is a true multi-user, multi-threaded SQL database server. This
package contains the libraries and header files that are needed for
developing MySQL applications.
[bancroft@hilbert w3c-libwww-5.4.0]$  nm /usr/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.a | grep mysql_create_db
00003060 T mysql_create_db

However, under Fedora with a /usr/local installed mysql-4.0.21 the same 
configure goes through, but the compile fails with and undefined 
reference at link time,

Wow, the missing entry point is in fact missing ! 

[vic@pc72:/usr/local/src/libwww] nm /usr/local/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.a | grep create_db

Does anyone know what one would use in the mysql 4.* world instead of  
mysql_create_db . ? !
