Ok, unixODBC-2.2.9 did compile and install with the switches 
--enable-stats=no and --enable-gui=no.

But it's back to the same problem I had with the RPM: MyODBC-3.51 will 
not install:

[root at localhost MySQL_Connector_ODBC]# rpm -ivh MyODBC-3.51.07-1.i586.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
libodbcinst.so.1 is needed by MyODBC-3.51.07-1
Suggested resolutions:
[root at localhost MySQL_Connector_ODBC]#

So version 2.2.2 produces a segmantation fault, and 2.2.9 doesn't have a 
library needed by MyODBC.

Any suggestions on how to proceed from here would be appreciated.
