LGPL-library (tntdb) linked with GPL-library (mysql)


I'm the author of tntdb - a C++ class library for easy database access, which 
is on the list of prospective packages for debian. Currently the license is 
GPL with this famous openssl-clause, because a part of it (the 
postgresql-driver) links against postgresql-libraries, which link against 

I would like to change the license to LGPL. The problem here is, that the 
mysql-driver links with mysql, which is GPL. Does this GPL of mysql mean, 
that tntdb needs to be GPL also? Doesn't that mean, that there is a license 
problem already, because tntdb has this openssl-exception?
