I want to try to include Ken's mysql patch into the Swish-E I inlude 
with Lookup
( I want to generate the swish-e 
Makefile with autoconf configure. My checks for mysql 
like this, but I dont know how to 'find' libdir and the directory 
that holds mysql.h, so now libdir and myheaderdir are hardcoded in (for Linux). Does someone know how to autoconf mysql??

Bas Meijer

# from
dnl Checks for header files.
AC_CHECK_HEADERS(strings.h unistd.h mysql/mysql.h)
dnl Check for MySQL

# from
libdir = /usr/lib
myheaderdir = /usr/include/mysql
