First of all, if you want to install php4, I strongly recommend that you
intsall it from a Debian package (either source or binary), and not by
compiling by hand.
Second, no, the mysql development package is not installed by default on
every Debian system (why would it be?). The package you want is
libmysqlclient10-dev, but you'll find that php4 requires a lot of other
packages in order to build everything (which is taken care of for you if you
build from a package).
