    Which error does it throw? Have you installed build-essential package? It contains all packages necessary to compile packages from source.

    I would suggest you to install packages through Package Manager only. Its not easy to compile packages from source. Mysql package is available in Sources and you should not compile it from source unless you have specific reason.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    As I mentioned earlier, its not easy to install packages without internet connection.
    If you have access to machine having internet connection ( OS in that machine doesn't matter ), you can download packages in that machine and install in yours.

    Check this thread.
