[typo] Installing Typo without SQLite?

Is there any way to install Typo *without* also installing SQLite? I'm
planning to use MySQL to host the database and for reasons I don't
particularly want to spend any time investigating installing SQLite fails on
my server:

> bash-2.05b# gem install typo
> Install required dependency mongrel_cluster? [Yn]  Y
> Install required dependency sqlite3-ruby? [Yn]  Y
> Select which gem to install for your platform (i686-linux)
>  1. sqlite3-ruby 1.1.0 (ruby)
>  2. sqlite3-ruby 1.1.0 (mswin32)
>  3. Cancel installation
> > 1

> *** extconf.rb failed ***
> Could not create Makefile due to some reason, probably lack of
> necessary libraries and/or headers.  Check the mkmf.log file for more
> details.  You may need configuration options.

I tried using --ignore-dependencies:

> bash-2.05b# gem install typo --ignore-dependencies
> Successfully installed typo-4.0.1

But this just postpones the problem - running typo fails with:

> -bash-2.05b$ typo --help
> /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:251:in
> `report_activate_error': Could not find RubyGem sqlite3-ruby (>= 1.1.0)
> (Gem::LoadError)
>   from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:188:in
> `activate'
>         from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:214:in
> `activate'
>         from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:213:in
> `activate'
>         from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:66:in 
> `active_gem_with_options'
>         from /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems.rb:59:in
> `require_gem'
>         from /usr/local/bin/typo:17

Any suggestions? Or do I just have to bite the bullet and work out how to
persuade SQLite to install?
