Having problems installing perl mysql module?

I get the following error message when attempting to install

# perl Makefile.PL
Can't exec "mysql_config": No such file or directory at Makefile.PL line 82.

Cannot find the file 'mysql_config'! Your execution PATH doesn't seem
not contain the path to mysql_config. Resorting to guessed values!
Can't exec "mysql_config": No such file or directory at Makefile.PL line 464.
Can't find mysql_config. Use --mysql_config option to specify where mysql_config is located
Can't exec "mysql_config": No such file or directory at Makefile.PL line 464.

Perform search over the internet for this problem and found I needed to install mysql-devel. It install successfully but the same problem continues.

Tried locating the mysql-config file without success..

# find / -name mysql_config
