When I try to install RMySQL from source on Mac OS X 10.4.4 (iMac G5 
2.1 Ghz), I get this...

[tcom122-223-dhcp:2.1.1/Resources/library] root# setenv PKG_CPPFLAGS 
[tcom122-223-dhcp:2.1.1/Resources/library] root# setenv PKG_LIBS

Any suggestions for how to successfully install RMySQL on my system 
would be appreciated.
