i am using w3c-libwww-5.4.0, what are you using?

in w3c-libwww-5.4.0, HTSQL.c, HTSQL.h, and HTSQLLog.c are incorrect.
they need to be hacked!

if you look in Library/src off the base directory of your distribution
of w3c-libwww, you will find HTSQL.c, HTSQL.h, and HTSQLLog.c

check to see if HTSQL.c uses mysql_connect or mysql_real_connect, if
'mysql_connect', then you need to hack the code because 'mysql_connect'
has been eliminated from mysql. they use 'mysql_real_connect' now, and
the syntax is different.  if you need help, write me directly
(otrcomm@isp-systems.com), and i will guide you through how to get
w3c-libwww compiled with mysql support.

i use redhat 7.3, fedora core 4, and fedora core 5 systems and DO NOT
install mysql at system build or with rpms or yum or apt-get. i always
install the mysql tarball. i use mysql-4.1.15.

i build mysql with:

../configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql --with-mysqld-user=mysql

so mysql gets installed in /usr/local/mysql. NOTE: adduser mysql before
so the '--with-mysqld-user=mysql' switch makes sense :)

then to get libww installed with mysql support, i use:

../configure  --with-gnu-ld

works like a charm on several systems after i hacked the code mentioned
