Autoconf only provides ./configure --with-mysql-server=ipaddress, so it
looks like you're already using it.

If your program is a gui, then that may be more appropriate anyways -
especially since the person building your program for a distro is not
going to have the same preferences for default settings as the person
using your gui pre-built from a distro.  But that's well outside the
realm of autoconf, and something you may be better off asking on lists
dedicated to developing with gsetting or other comparable gui setting
