still pull in other libraries?  I really think they should be restricted
to "-lmysqlclient" and "-lmysqlclient_r" respectively.  Every additional
dependency can complicate transitions and upgrades down the line, and
doesn't bring any upside.  What we should be aiming for is the behavior
from wheezy:

$ mysql_config | grep -- --libs
        --libs           [-rdynamic -L/usr/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient]
        --libs_r         [-rdynamic -L/usr/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient_r]

As Steve mentioned in #673264, you should test with the version from
experimental (it was building fine without "-lssl -lcrypto" when I
checked on Friday).
