Aha.  I followed the instructions on the Download page at http://www.unixodbc.org, which say to do:

  svn co https://unixodbc.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/unixodbc/trunk unixodbc

but apparently I should have done:

  svn co svn://svn.code.sf.net/p/unixodbc/code/trunk unixodbc

The first location has up through r77 in April, but the second location is now at r88, including my patch (thanks for that!).  So apparently I've been stung by some recent migration or "upgrade" at SourceForge.  Kind of odd (and annoying) that they'd continue to serve up a stale version of the code at the old location rather than redirecting.
