Subject: install fail in Strawberry(Mingw on MSWin32) without manual hack
Download (untitled) / with headers

In order to install DBD::mysql on Strawberry Perl, it has to link to some ".a" instead of ".lib" in mysql lib path. But makefile generated by Makefile.PL links neither to .lib nor .a in mysql lib path so build will never success.

The version currently on CPAN should fix this bug (it copies the required libraries to have a .a extension so that they can be found - ExtUtils::LibList (iirc) requires libraries to have a .a extension in a Strawberry environment.)
