I would like to get a mysql client working with the current version of

I tried used the code mentioned in a post a few months back at

(require (lib "mysqlclient.ss" "mysqlclient"))
load-extension: couldn't open "/usr/local/plt/lib/plt/collects/
mysqlclient/compiled/native/i386-linux/3m/mysqlclient_ss.so" (/usr/
mysqlclient_ss.so: undefined symbol: mysql_field_count)

Has anyone else tried this and got it working or seen this error? My
guess is that the header files that are referenced in mysqlclient.ss
are not being found but I am new to this.

If there is something else that someone has used, even if its not
perfect, I'd love to try it. I'm just using it for utilities and test
