Originally the unixODBC driver version was there as the PG folks unix 
driver didn't expect a driver manager, so the windows version was ported 
and included. Since then the postgre people have added a --with-unixODBC 
flag, so the driver in the distribution is not as required.

I continue to include it just to avoid confusing people. I guess it 
could go now. Its not up to date with the PG one, but I do fix problems 
with it as they crop up.
