Installing mysql2 gem with MariaDB using MacPorts

I found issues when building the standard mysql2 gem on my OS X development machine. It was looking for MySQL libraries and headers, but not in the place they are installed when using MariaDB. The following command tells the gem where to find them:

gem install mysql2 -- --with-mysql-config=/opt/local/lib/mariadb/bin/mysql_config

In addition, sometimes I've needed to specify --use-system-libraries
