Kevin, the reason that your mysql program worked is that the shared library 
was part of the system's installed library and the dynamic linker had it in 
the ld.so.cache.  Your library will not be there unless you put it there.

When you compiled this you ended up with a library libsockets.a.  Just put 
this after the *.o files on the link line when you compile your application - 
you may need to find out how to include other libraries in Kdevelop.
