Problem using libpurple with libmysqlclient?

I am quite new to libpurple. I compiled and run the example nullclient.c originally from the pidgin source successfully. But when adding some non-sense code using the mysqlclient library (with the header file mysql.h declared) right before the return statement in the main of nullclient.c, for example:
MYSQL *conn;

the nullclient.c was still compiled successfully but it hung when running. I activated the debug mode and found out this happened at "(10:51:19) plugins: probing /usr/lib/purple-2/".
I am using Ubuntu 12.10, below is my library version 
lii  libmysqlclient-dev              5.5.28-0ubuntu0.12.1 amd64               
ii  libperl-dev                     5.14.2-13ubuntu0.1   amd64                
ii  libpurple-dev                   1:2.10.6-0ubuntu2    all                 

I don't know whether it is normal or not.
