Well, the test suite for the module runs with it uninstalled, and it
really makes no difference - if the tests failed then there's
probably something wrong.

Try the pure perl mysql driver, but perhaps a more appropriate
solution is to share the failure output as well as information on
your computer (operating system, perl version, etc) so that we can
help you determine if this should be reported to the DBD::mysql
module maintainer or not.
