MySQL and Mac OS 9

I'm wondering if anyone else is successfully using a MySQL database with a
Mac OS 9 client.  I can't seem to make it work.  I'm just using the
revdb_connect function, but my standalone does not seem to recognize that
function.  The same code works fine on Windows and OS X.  In looking more
closely, it appears that there is not a revdb library for OS 9, at least not
that I can find.  Should there be, or is OS 9 different from the other two?

I just tested the stacks running in the IDE and everything works fine.  It
just fails in the built standalone.  I've got the MySQL Library PPC library
in the same folder as my standalone.  But, like I said, I cannot find any
revdb library like with the other two platforms.  Anyone have any ideas?  I
hope this is something I can workaround.  Maybe it's just another issue with
the standalone builder not copying all the necessary files?  I'm running Rev
2.5 with all the latest updates.
