Seems like the development package of MySQL is missing; does SuSE 8.1 have a separate RPM for that (could be named mysql-dev or similar)? Search for mysql.h in YaST...
If you already have it installed, give mysql-python (I presume that's what you're compiling) the path to the header files. See ./configure --help for the options.
Else, deinstall the SuSE MySQL RPM and get one from mysql.com, or build it from source; with that you should have the environment needed.
