Bug description: PHP Configure fails with "mysql configure failed"

I'm trying to configure PHP to use the client libraries for MySQL 4.0.16,
which I downloaded as a binary (Solaris 9 64-bit) and installed in

When I attempt to configure PHP using:

../configure --with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql --with-apache=../apache_1.3.29
--with-openssl=/usr/local/ssl --with-zlib-dir=./ext/zlib
--enable-track-vars --enable-libgcc --disable-cgi

I get the following error:

checking for mysql_close in -lmysqlclient... no
checking for mysql_error in -lmysqlclient... no
configure: error: mysql configure failed. Please check config.log for more

Config.log shows:

configure:55581: checking for mysql_error in -lmysqlclient
configure:55600: gcc -o conftest -g -O2 -D_POSIX_PTHREAD_SEMANTICS
-R/usr/local/mysql/lib -L/usr/local/mysql/lib -R/usr/ucblib -L/usr/ucblib
-R/usr/local/ssl/lib -L/usr/local/ssl/lib -R/usr -L/usr conftest.c
-lmysqlclient -lz -lz -lssl -lcrypto -lresolv -lm -ldl -lnsl -lsocket
-lgcc 1>&5
ld: warning: file /usr/local/mysql/lib/libmysqlclient.a(libmysql.o): wrong
Undefined first referenced
symbol in file
mysql_error /var/tmp//cc4fDlj3.o
ld: fatal: Symbol referencing errors. No output written to conftest

These are not the final lines, but they seem most relevant; I can post
more if necessary.

Is it possible that PHP is looking for a 32-bit MySQL binary and crashing
when it finds a 64-bit? If so, are there plans to support 64-bit MySQL?
