With deeper investigation I have found the error, allthough it is a
strange one:

First run of the configure with the following typo was:

./configure --enable-mysql-auth

Then, after realizing mysql support was not compiled in, I ran the
correct command:

./configure --enable-auth-mysql

The configure script is using the cached values and is not finding
mysql.h. After deleting the cache everything works fine. Imho a really
strange error, why is configure caching unneeded values?

Thanks and sorry for the false alert,

Jens Liebchen
