You always need that if you want to work with MySQL in PHP!

You should install the MySQL-devel packages to be able to compile PHP with MySQL. Please have a look at "The Perfect Setup" series on HowtoForge. I'm sure your distribution is also covered there, and the howtos show how to install the appropriate MySQL-devel package.
