I know :-(. I used the gnu source of 1.5.20, and added it with
libtoolise --force --ldtd --copy
ltmain.sh (GNU libtool) 1.5.20 (1.1220.2.287 2005/08/31 18:54:15)
autoconf (GNU Autoconf) 2.59
automake (GNU automake) 1.9.6

The problem I have, is that it does need a small tweek, to allow the
enable-group to work.

Well, if its just for that, there is a snapshot of current that should
build in ftp://ftp.easysoft.com/pub/unixODBC
