This error broke my python-mysql installation on Mac 10.7.5. Here are the steps
- The installed python is 2.7.1, mysql is 64 bit for 5.6.11.
- The being installed python-mysql is 1.2.4, also tried 1.2.3
Configurations for the installation
1) sudo ln -s /usr/local/mysql/lib /usr/local/mysql/lib/mysql 2) Edit the setup_posix.py and change the following mysql_config.path = "mysql_config" to mysql_config.path = "/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config" 3) sudo python setup.py build
Here is the stacktrace for build

Altering the cflags options finally helped!
