I didn't test MySQL, but AFAIR this problem is caused by compiler  
mismatch (it started with Xcode 2.2 I believe). Did you run sudo  
gcc_select 3.3 before compiling? The real reason for the above is  
that you're missing -lSystemStubs (which is static) when compiling  
RMySQL. Adding that to the LIBS for the package should work.
