Ok, its because the gui parts have been moved to a seperate project, but 
I think I will add the option back in for backwards compatibility.

I would first try and get MyODBC working using isql and the normal 
unixODBC ini files /etc/odbc.ini and /etc/odbcinst.ini

It may be something as simple as the MyODBC driver failing to find its 
client libs.


dltest /home/eberwick/Desktop/bobje/mysql-odbc*/lib/libmyodbc5.so

To see if if can be loaded
