Hi there,
I had similar problems with "make test". This is what I've done (change paths appropriately)

1. expand PATH with the mySQL binary path (there is a program that needs to be run).
export PATH=/usr/local/mysql/bin/:$PATH

2. similar thing with LD_LIBRARY_PATH:
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

3. The MySQL Server has to be up and must accept connections through the default port

4. Provided you have a mySQL user which could be used for testing, call perl Makefile.PL (first step of installing a perl Module) with options --testuser='user' --testpassword='userSPassword' otherwise generate a user and run the "perl Makefile.PL" afterwards.

Good luck
