Sphinx Quick Fix

Here’s one small filesystem tweak that’s been handy as I’ve been slowly rebuilding my development environment on Leopard over the last couple of days. It’s to get Sphinx working – there was no problems with compilation or installation, but when I ran searchd or indexer, it complained about not finding the mysql libraries:

dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql/libmysqlclient.15.dylib
  Referenced from: /usr/local/bin/indexer
  Reason: image not found

Now, the expected file path is incorrect – it shouldn’t have the second ‘mysql’. My attempts to change that with various configuration flags didn’t work, so I cheated, and added the folder as a symbolic link:

sudo ln -s /usr/local/mysql/lib /usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql

Suggestions of a cleaner solution always welcome.
