Description:
------------
In configure script for 5.4.22 starting on line 61786, the script searches for a libmysqlclient. It searches for libmysqlclient.* in common library folders such as /usr, /usr/lib64 and so on.

For an application I need, I have a libmysqlclient.so.15 in that directory as the application is linked against this version. There is NO libmysqlclient.so though, so linking against it with "-lmysqlclient" does not work.

My MySQL installation lives in /usr/lib64/mysql though which mysql_config reports just fine and even the configure script finds correctly when I move the library out of the way.

Actual result:
--------------
It should only search for either a libmysqlclient.so (or a libmysqlclient.dylib depending on your environment) as only those fulfill the linker requirement when -lmysqlclient is specified.

This probably is the ext/mysql configuration. Both mysqli and pdo_mysql can use mysql_config. For legacy reasons ext/mysql doesn't. ext/mysql is deprecated and not suggested to use and we don't plan to open the can of worms of the build system there.

But there is a solution: We include mysqlnd as a PHP-specific replacement for libmysql, simply compiling --with-mysql --with-mysqli --with-pdo-mysql without extra path in 5.4 or newer should use mysqlnd instead of looking for libmysql. This can also be forced by using =mysqlnd as "path" to the three options
