Compiling C Program to access mysql, issues with libmysqlclient.so

I am trying to compile a program to access a mysql database. I get the following error:
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/libmysqlclient.so when searching for -lmysqlclient
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lmysqlclient

I have this compiled on a different machine and works. This machine is running Fedora Enterprise 5 and has a 64-bit processor. I have the 32 bit mysql and all the libraries installed. It appears to find it, but thinks its incompatible. Anyone had any experience with this?

Are you trying to build with 32 bit or 64 bit compiler/bintools?
