Deploying C++ Connector to linux. Painful or not?

I just started using C++ connector, but I must admit, that the deploying it under Visual Studio 2013 was a really painful experience. (The package with built binaries didn't work due it being linked against MSVCP90D and MSVCR90D which are debug libraries) so I had to build it myself. Which wasn't exactly as easy I expected either (errors).

The problem is, that at some point the application will need to be built under linux. If the process of deploying the package on linux is as counterproductive as on Windows MSVC, then it might be easier for me to just write my own simple C++ wrapper and use raw MySQL C API.
I mean look at the boost libraries. Building them is as simple as setting OpenSSL and Zlib paths (which is optional anyways) and running a build script.

So again - the question is: Is it actually easier to deploy this cursed package on linux? Or there are tons of troubles too?

Thank you for your answers,
