Fails to compile mythzoneminder when mysql-5.7 is used

Ubuntu is introducing mysql 5.-7 into the 16.04 archive shortly:

Unfortunately mythtv doesn't compile against it properly. The configure check for mysql/mysql.h under mythplugins fails when compiling against mysql-5.7.

This happens because <mysql/mysql.h> includes "mysql/client_plugin.h". mysql/mysql/client_plugin.h includes <mysql/plugin_auth_common.h>. The actual location of plugin_auth_common.h is /usr/include/mysql/mysql/auth_plugin_common.h. Of course this isn't part of the default search path so it leads to a failure.

This is the most obvious failure that affects MythTV. There are all sorts of instances that they're expecting /usr/include/mysql to be on the search path in the headers.

This can be fixed by adding a -I/usr/include/mysql to the header check and to the mythzmserver search path for includes.

I recommend using pkg-config (package "mysqlclient") or mysql_config instead of hard coding the include path.

Pkg-config support is new in MySQL 5.7, while mysql_config has been around for an eternity.
