MySQL connector c/c++ and MinGW

I need to access an MySQL database from a Code:Blocks/MinGW project on Windows. As far as I know I can't use the available binary versions of the MySQL connectors. Well, I followed mainly the descriptions here:,425191,425191 and here:,426293,426927
But neither works. It begins with a missing BOOST which I got installed then. But then it complains about a missing mysql_config. The description says "mysql_config needs to be in PATH for the configuration to work". But unfortunately there is only a I've even tried several versions of MinGW and/or MSYS but neither works. Every combination gives different errors but all have in common that they fail. Well, all in all I've spent about 25-30 hours this week on this topic without success. What can I do?

Best regards
