When he said you should try the "--without-mysql", he meant you should 
start again with that switch.
There might be some targets to really clean the build folders, but my 
advice is:
- Remove your extracted version
- Extract again the tar ball
- Configure using your old switches and the --without-mysql
- Compile

So in shell, this would be:
rm -rf nagios-plugins-*/
tar zxf nagios-plugins-*.tar.gz
cd nagios-plugins-*/
./configure --without-mysql --with-your --other-options

Maybe a "make maintainer-clean" is enough, not sure.

Hope this helps,
