[unixODBC-support] unixODBC not working with FreeTDS on AIX7.1

Ah...okay...thanks for the quick response.  I have had no luck getting shareable libraries (.so) to compile on AIX.  I was worried that this was the issue.

Let me dig further into that conundrum.

And to you.

Now, for my problem, I am having no luck getting unixODBC and FreeTDS to work together on AIX7.1.  I built them for my Solaris 10 server and they work great there, so not sure what I am doing wrong on AIX.

I have built both (64-bit) using gcc.  I can connect to my backend MSSQL database using the tools tsql and bsqldb, but I cannot get the utilities isql and bsqlodbc to connect as they both report ""[unixODBC][Driver Manager]Can't open lib '/apps/unixODBC/lib/libtdsodbc.a' : file not found""

The library archive exists, and contains all the 64-bit objects:

sasown at a3pvap088:/apps/unixODBC/bin$ ar -t -v -X 64 /apps/unixODBC/lib/libtdsodbc.a

Looks like its built an archive instead of a loadable library.

It needs to build something that dltest can open;
