I think the version in CVS was broken when you downloaded
it. You can try what's there now, or, probably better,
download 1.4.2 and run configure like this:

    CPPFLAGS=-I/path/to/mysql/headers CFLAGS=-I/path/to/mysql/headers LDFLAGS=-L/path/to/mysql/libs ./configure ...

Note that the version in CVS is *certainly* unsupported,
even more so than the prereleases.
