results of compiling with -lmysqlclient

I just realized that when I compile with -lmysqlclient I am adding the 
current version to my program or in my specific case  
When I upgrade, as I just did, to, I have to recompile. 
  Is there not a way to use that is a link to the current 
active version or is there some reason why that would not be a good 
solution.  I seldom see problems with backwards compatability and I have 
been know to create a link from the current library to the missing name 
without problems when I haven't had the source handy.

Thanks for clearing this up for me.
