if (  your OS supports dynamic loading ) {
    while( libtool is not producing a shared object ) {
       printf( "fix libtool so it produces a shared object, thats down 
to you, as its your OS\n" );
    printf( "produce shared object, then unixODBC should work fine\n" );
else {
    print( "You can't use unixODBC, all you may be able to do is link 
your app with the one driver and use that without a driver manager\n" );
