Well, Cygwin Ports has MySQL client and server packages so you can use
that if you want.
But in this case MySQL was a red herring, it wouldn't have made a
difference either way since the module itself was built against the
native Win32 ruby. But of course having libmysqlclient-dev (or whatever
the package that contains development headers and import libs is named)
installed would be a prerequisite for properly rebuilding the module.
