sorry for this late summary...
thanks to Lupe Christoph, and Dale Poulter.

one of solution (not unique i think) is:
deinstall mysql-3.22.26a, and compile from scratch mysql-3.23.49. After, 
i can install DBD::mysql binary from CPAN without mistakes.

etc..., nothing works! always mistakes with libmysql.
