Building SysBench in Ubuntu 13.04

When trying to build SysBench 0.4.12 you may be getting an error like:

/bin/sh ../libtool --tag=CC   --mode=link gcc -pthread -g -O2      -o sysbench sysbench.o sb_timer.o sb_options.o sb_logger.o db_driver.o tests/fileio/libsbfileio.a tests/threads/libsbthreads.a tests/memory/libsbmemory.a tests/cpu/libsbcpu.a tests/oltp/libsboltp.a tests/mutex/libsbmutex.a drivers/mysql/libsbmysql.a -L/usr/local/mysql/lib/ -lmysqlclient_r   -lrt -lm

First, install the mysql libs and necessary build tools if you have not already:

sudo apt-get install libmysqlclient-dev
sudo apt-get install gcc make build-essentials libtool automake

Then, run the extra libtoolize and autogen commands which correct the issue:

./configure
make
#... problem happens
# keep going to fix it...
libtoolize --force --copy
./autogen.sh
./configure
make
sudo make install

This was not my problem, related to RANLIB, but may help you:
