Installation, ruby-mysql in OS X

I haven’t done this but I think I know enough about OS X to help you a
little. Here goes,

I found libmysqlclient.a in /usr/local/mysql/lib and the mysql.h header
file in /usr/local/mysql/include/

If you run ‘find / -name mysql.h’ you should find the include directory.
If you run ‘find / -name libmysqlclient.a’ you should find the lib

These may be non standard install directories but you can still get the
make file to run by using this command.

ruby extconf.rb --with-mysql-lib=/usr/local/mysql/lib

After that, make sure your mysql server is running and just follow the
make file.
