I have Centos 6.3
I have the following mysql packages installed:
# rpm -qa|grep mysql
mysql-5.1.73-3.el6_5.x86_64
dovecot-mysql-2.0.9-7.el6.x86_64
php-mysql-5.3.3-27.el6_5.x86_64
mysql-server-5.1.73-3.el6_5.x86_64
mysql-devel-5.1.73-3.el6_5.x86_64
mysql-libs-5.1.73-3.el6_5.x86_64



I am trying to compile postfix with mysql support, and I am using the following command:
make -f Makefile.init makefiles \
CCARGS='-DNO_NIS \
-DUSE_TLS -I/usr/include \
-DUSE_SASL_AUTH -DUSE_CYRUS_SASL -I/usr/include/sasl \
-DDEF_SERVER_SASL_TYPE="dovecot" \
-DHAS_PCRE -I/usr/include/  \
-DHAS_SSL  -I/usr/include/openssl \
-DHAS_MYSQL -I/usr/include/mysql' \
AUXLIBS='-L/usr/lib64/ -lssl -lcrypto -L/usr/lib64/sasl2 -lsasl2 \
-L/usr/lib64/ -lpcre -L/usr/lib/mysql/ -lmysqlclient -lz -lm'

But it is complaining from missing -lmysqlclient which is not existing from where I can get it?
