Alright, now this seems strange -- there wasn't a libmysqlclient.so on my
system, at least not that I can find.

MySQL is installed in /usr/local/mysql ... No libmysqlclient.so files to be
found anywhere in there, even though we already got over the hurdle of a
dynamically loadable MySQL (so I thought), since we finally got the
mod_log_sql_mysql.so file during the mod_log_sql build.

The deeper into all of this I get, the more I start thinking "It's time to
just go get a FreeBSD box." OS X is *almost* a regular UNIX citizen, but
it's just not quite _enough_ of a regular UNIX citizen.

Thanks for your patience, Edward ... Can you suggest how
mod_log_sql_mysql.so would have built successfully in the absence of a
libmysqlclient.so file?
