How to build perl DBD::mysql with Cygwin on Windows XP
------------------------------------------------------

+ install Cygwin -> Devel - gcc-g++ (C++ Compiler). Otherwise, you
will get configuration error:

checking how to run the C++ preprocessor... /lib/cpp
configure: error: C++ preprocessor "/lib/cpp" fails sanity check
See `config.log' for more details.

+ download MySQL linux source codes file:

terrence@southbank /usr/local/src/mysql/5.0.22
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mysql

$ make

$ make install

$ cp /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config .

$ perl -MCPAN -e shell

cpan> install DBD::mysql (version 3.006)

OR:

$ perl Makefile.PL --testhost=127.0.0.1 --testuser=root --testpassword=getaway

Note: you should use "127.0.0.1" rather than "localhost" on Windows,
otherwise you will get error:

Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/tmp/mysql.sock'
