[unixODBC-dev] ODBCConfig: undefined symbol: iniElement

After successfully installing the unixODBC-2.2.12 and successfully re-compiling my project, I got the following on run-time:

"undefined symbol: SQLConfigDataSource".

I guess, I just didn't link against the unixODBC library. But my understanding was that the linker should pick that library by default, after successfully installing unixODBC.
So, what am I suppose to do?

Thank you in advance.

P.S.: Like I explained in the previous E-mail with the 2.2.12, the "iniElement" problem is gone.

Otherwise you can go to ftp://ftp.sourceforge.org/pub and download the latest version of unixODBC, comple it using the latest libtool stable, and enjoy. If you don't have a latest libtool, you either upgrade this, or build from the CVS.

Sorry, I don't understamd that.

Just be aware that 2.2.12 is NOT releases, feel free to use it, but 
there may well be a later, official 2,2,12 that has other changes.
