Using MinGW with MySQL on Windows

Hello everyone.

I'm having problems linking a MinGW project to the Windows variant of MySQL. I can assume that the Windows variant of the MySQL libraries (libmysql and mysqlclient) are both MSVC or something similar formated libraries. I've tried to convert the libraries to the GCC format but I'm not having a lot of luck there. the tool "reimp" complains that the mysqlclient library file is corrupt (it said that about the libmysql as well but I used the "pexport" tool to convert the dll and it worked)

My question is this... Is there a DLL of mysqlclient.lib? or someone who has converted it to a ".a" format here?

I guess a third question is this... Does anyone have any experience in compiling MySQL in MinGW ?
