I have the same problem, anyway DLL is not needed in compilation time...
compiler is looking for mysqlclient.lib or .aw? file...

Using the debuging options from ppc386 and

There is supposed to be a DLL called libmysql.dll that should probably be
copied from the MySQL installation to the Windows System directory.   Oddly
though, not all distribution packages of MySQL for Windows has this DLL
included.  I managed to get the DLL from an older distribution of MySQL and
it seems to work fine with the current version.
