From manual page:
The value for the option --mysql is *not* the complete path of the mysql_config script - entering that gives the error "MySQL header not found". The correct value here is rather the directory containing the "include" path to mysql.h. So if mysql.h is in /usr/local/include, the value of the --mysql option should be "/usr/local".

Or, in the words of ./configure --help:

--with-mysql=DIR        Include MySQL support.  DIR is the MySQL base
                          directory, if no DIR is passed or the value is
                          mysqlnd the MySQL native driver will be used

However, --with-mysqli wants the path to mysql_config here. That seems a bit inconsistent.

The mysql related info has been removed from that section[1],
so this ticket is obsolete now.
