I recently upgraded my system to RedHat 9 and reinstalled Bioperl.  All 
is well except for database access.  When I run the Bio::DB::GFF tests, 
they all fail with the following error:

t/BioDBGFF...................install_driver(mysql) failed: Can't load 
for module DBD::mysql: 
undefined symbol: mysql_ssl_set at 
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.0/i386-linux-thread-multi/DynaLoader.pm line 229, <T> 
line 6.
 at (eval 11) line 3
Compilation failed in require at (eval 11) line 3, <T> line 6.
Perhaps a required shared library or dll isn't installed where expected
 at blib/lib/Bio/DB/GFF/Adaptor/dbi/caching_handle.pm line 140
t/BioDBGFF...................FAILED tests 1-116
        Failed 116/116 tests, 0.00% okay

The mysql_ssl_set is a flag that can be set if mysql_ssl flag is set to 
on.  However, I have no idea how to change this or if there is an ssl 
module that I installed that is causing the problem.  Any help is 

Thank you.
