It depends on the driver. I guess so. But you app will have to cope 
without the help the driver anager proides.

Also if you are linking your app directly to the driver, make sure that 
you conform to the requirements of whichever license driver is 
distributed under.

You only need to create a tar file containing the unixDOBC install parts 
and copy that on every machine. Why not make up a tar file containing 
the driver manager libs, bins, and the driver libs, and include a 
configured odbc.ini and odbcinst.ini, then its one step to install.
