I haven't been able to reproduce this myself.  It is possible you have
mysql installed on your system, and there is a different version
of libmysql.dll in C:\windows\system32?  If so, perhaps that one is
getting used in preference to the one in the FWTools bin directory and
it lacks the required entry point.

Garr!  I wish I knew how to force my own versions of DLLs to always
be used in preference to stuff in C:\windows\system32.  For things
like libz, and libtiff I've deliberately built _fw.dll versions just
to avoid name collisions.  But I can't practically do that for everything.
