ldd /usr/local/bin/odbcinst
	linux-gate.so.1 =>  (0xf7778000)
	libodbcinst.so.1 => /usr/lib32/libodbcinst.so.1 (0xf775a000)
	libdl.so.2 => /lib32/libdl.so.2 (0xf7756000)
	libpthread.so.0 => /lib32/libpthread.so.0 (0xf773c000)
	libc.so.6 => /lib32/libc.so.6 (0xf75e2000)
	libltdl.so.7 => /usr/lib32/libltdl.so.7 (0xf75d9000)
	/lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0xf7779000)

Thanks again
