    I have bee ntrying unsuccessfully to install DBD::mysql as a mysql driver to Perl DBI.

    The CPAN version does not understand Leopard's structure.

    Tried following hints about finding where mysql was located in /usr/local etc and making symbolic links in those directories so that the DBD Makefile would not fall over. Didn;t work

    Tried using MacPorts. problem is that it installs a new version of Mysql and Perl and I want to use the built in Mysql and perl. anyway the automatic installation of Perl during the MacPorts 'port install p5-dbd-mysql' did not work.

    Hours of googling has not found the answer, has anyone else?
