problem installing mysql gem

For some reason I can't get mysql gem installed. I have the libmysqlclient
and mysql-server and mysql-client installed, but it doesn't work. I am
running ubuntu 8.10. Am I missing a required package I don't know about?
What am I doing wrong?

Here is the output:

[email protected]:~/Projects/rets$ sudo gem install mysql
Building native extensions. This could take a while...
ERROR: Error installing mysql:

When I try to use the --with-mysqlclientlib conf option, I get this output:

[email protected]:~/Projects/rets$ sudo gem install mysql -- --with-mysqlclientlib

see how it changes from -lmysqlclient to -ltrue?
