It isn't really a driver, it is more of a client that you can use from a
program you write. Thus you can't install it separately somewhere and
expect different programs to find it.

Look at YXA for example (where that code comes from originally). YXA has
the mysql directory as /src/mysql here

  http://github.com/fredrikt/yxa/tree/master/src/mysql/

and the code is called from here

http://github.com/fredrikt/yxa/blob/master/src/sipuserdb/sipuserdb_mysql.erl
