Subject: "No library found for -lmysqlclient" is reported as harmless warning
When libmysqlclient.so is not present in system then DBD::mysql cannot be obviously compiled. Makefile.PL detect this problem, but treat it only as harmless warning "Warning (mostly harmless): No library found for -lmysqlclient" -- even it is fatal error and requirement for compilation. At this step Makefile.PL should stop compilation and report fatal error.
Reopening, fix was reverted in 4.043.
