Subject: Makefile.PL should not require rw access to mysql directories on MSWin32
Download (untitled) / with headers

It seems to me that you should be able to install DBD::mysql without having read/write access to the Mysql directories. Makefile.PL actually writes over an existing that has the correct values (but uses VC++ style flags) with one that has incorrect values (but uses gcc style flags). This can be a problem if the MySQL development files are being used by other tools. I was able to work around that with this patch: Makefile.PL also tries to copy the .lib files that it needs to .a files. For me this silently fails because it thinks the lib files are in $MYSQL/lib/opt, but they are really in $MYSQL/lib for me.
