I have installed a bunch of software including mysql 4.012 from source (SQL
works fine).  Running FreeBSD 5.0.  When I run (snort) get the following

/usr/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object "libmysqlclient.so.12" not found

The file does exist on my system in /usr/local/lib/mysql/   It is also
simlinked (libmysqlclient.so@):
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel    20 Apr  7 20:32 libmysqlclient.so@ ->

I have attempted to figure out the linkage problem with ldconfig and the
hints files, but now I'm frustrated...........  Help (or a BFH)  is greatly

Thanks in advance.
