Problems installing DBD::mysql

dthacker has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm attempting an install of the DBD-mysql module off of CPAN. I'm using perl 5.8 (thanks to another unintentional CPAN upgrade). I've loaded DBI successfully and installed mysql successfully. My OS is RH 7.3 If you're so inclined, please take a look at the error listing below.

CPAN.pm: Going to build J/JW/JWIED/DBD-mysql-2.1017.tar.gz Can't exec "mysql_config": No such file or directory at Makefile.PL li +ne 169. readline() on closed filehandle main::PIPE at Makefile.PL line 171. Can't exec "mysql_config": No such file or directory at Makefile.PL li +ne 169. readline() on closed filehandle main::PIPE at Makefile.PL line 171. Can't exec "mysql_config": No such file or directory at Makefile.PL li +ne 169. readline() on closed filehandle main::PIPE at Makefile.PL line 171.

Use perl Makefile.PL --cflags=-I<dir> to set this directory. For details see the INSTALL.html file, section "C Compiler flags" or type perl Makefile.PL --help Running make test Make had some problems, maybe interrupted? Won't test Running make install Make had some problems, maybe interrupted? Won't install
Thanks in Advance!

    The errors are telling you it can't find mysql_config. My version of /usr/bin/mysql_config is provided by the main MySQL rpm. Are you sure you already have MySQL installed? If so, did you compile manually? If that's the case, perhaps there is a configure flag you missed? Regardless, you're missing mysql_config... or, at the very least, it's not in your $PATH.
    [jason@lappy jason]$ rpm -qf /usr/bin/mysql_config mysql-3.23.49-3
    -fp

    I just recently had that problem myself.

    Edit Makefile.PL and where it has something similar to "/usr/bin/mysql_config"

    change it to where your mysql_config is actually located per your mysql install.

    That should fix it for you.
    update: Look on line 169 of Makefile.PL
    perl -e '$_=$0;split??;chop$_;$;=pop@_;$;++for(0..9060420);$_.=reverse +$;;print'
