CMake: Add option to prefer static libmysqlclient

I'm trying to build the MySQL FDO provider on CentOS against a binary MySQL Connector/C SDK (because the system-provided version is too old). Doing this however will complicate downstream dependency computation:

  • We can't say that these binaries require mysql (the system-provided version would be too old)
  • It is difficult to "bundle" the libmysqlclient .so files detected by FindMySQL.cmake (how would we know if this was custom or system-provided)

The simplest option here, is to prefer static libmysqlclient, which our find module currently doesn't do.
