MySQL 4.0.16 + PHP 4.3.4

Hello all, 

I decided to upgrade to little test server to a more recent PHP & MySQL (as well as Apache
2.0.48). Everything is working, but I still have a problem. I installed mysql from the port. I
installed PHP from source, but no matter what I tried giving ./configure for the --with-mysql
value, I got complaints. When I tried the actual mysql install dir, I got complaints that
./configure couldn't find a header file. When I tried the actual work subdir for the mysql port
itself, I got an error that it couldn't find the mysqlclient library.

As a result I'm going with PHPs builtin mysql support -- unfortunately, the built-in version is
3.23.xx, and I really want 4.0.

Google got me a suggestion that I need to download something called mysql-devel for my version of
mysql. However, I've only found this as an RPM, and I'm wondering if what I read before was just a
Linux answer.

Does anyone know what to do?
