SQLGetPrivateProfile() is implemented in libodbcinst.so I suspect you 
are just linking against libodbc.so which is the driver manager, and you 
should be linking against libodbcinst.so.

Applications should link against libodbc.so that is the driver manager, 
and drivers (which are under the DM) link with libodbcinst.so to get 
these functions.
