Your mysql binary ought to have an explicit path reference, which you  
can check via ldd:

% ldd /usr/local/bin/mysql
	libreadline.so.5 => /lib/libreadline.so.5 (0x28084000)
	libncurses.so.5 => /lib/libncurses.so.5 (0x280b1000)
	libmysqlclient.so.14 => /usr/local/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.so.14  
[ ... ]

What's the problem you were trying to solve?
