Honestly, I don't know. Where is it supposed to be? I did a
find /usr/lib -name 'libmysqlclient*' -print
but no file matching this name was found.
I have installed Ruby via the Cygwin setup program.
I have installed MySql for Windows, and running it as a service.
Finally, I have installed the Ruby mysql module via
gem install -r mysql
assuming that "this would do the right thing" anyway.

I tried to do a
but ldd was not found on my installation. In which Cygwin package is ldd
supposed to be?

Could well be. I think mysql uses somewhere below a native (C-)
to Mysql. If *this* is the reason for the problem, I will have to find
a different way to access Mysql.
