Description:
mysql_config points to /usr/local/mysql/lib when asked for --libs. This happens for all options.

How to repeat:
Install a unix-shell on windows (e.g. mingw) and execute mysql_config --libs.

Suggested fix:
let the installer patch the directories to the correct, installed localtions

Are you tried to use?:

CFG=/path/mysql_config

and

sh -c "gcc -o progname `$CFG --cflags` progname.c `$CFG --libs`"

No need to compile it, just do a 

$ /path/mysql_config --libs
-L/usr/local/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient -lz -lcrypt -lnsl -lm

$ /path/mysql_config --cflags
-I/usr/local/include/mysql

I was able to reproduce this behaviour using cygwin.
