I'm sorry that I probably didn't make myself clear - as I was trying  
to say the problem is (and your build log confirms it) that you have  
Xcode 2.2 and you didn't add -lSystemStubs. You need to do so,  
because R was configured with a different compiler. I just checked  
and the following worked for me with the latest MySQL (5.0.18) and  
latest Xcode (2.2.1):

PKG_CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/local/mysql/include PKG_LIBS='-L/usr/local/mysql/ 
lib -lmysqlclient -lSystemStubs' R CMD INSTALL RMySQL
