in reply to Perl5 and a custom MySQL4 install

I installed perl5 to write a few management scripts to do tasks, have DBI installed from CPAN, but DBD::Mysql did not want to install via CPAN, so I manually grabbed the /lib/ folder from cpan.org and threw the files into /usr/lib64/perl5 myself.

That won't work work, because DBD::mysql needs to compile some C/XS files. So yes, you need to compile your own DBD::mysql.
