Hi there,

Using fpc 1.0.6 and MySQL 3.23.49a under Red Hat Linux 6.2, everything
installed from rpm packages. When I try to compile a simple program
usign the mysql unit I get the error:

bash$ fpc testemysql.pas -Fl/usr/lib/mysql
Free Pascal Compiler version 1.0.6 [2002/05/23] for i386

my_compress.o(.text+0x13c): undefined reference to `compress'
testemysql.pas(55) Error: Error while linking
Closing script ppas.sh

Sure I missed something basic, but I could not find what. O though it
was zlib, but adding -lz to the command line yelds the same errors.
