All I can say is that I did warn you I was new to this.
I tried the port but had problems with the same files when trying to make
PHP. After this I went back to compiling the latest version. After following
the instructions in the documentation and other postings I'd seen and not
having any success I decided to read the INSTALL file again ( I had glanced
at it briefly before ). This time I took note of the fact that it says to
use gmake to make FreeTDS. After install and making using gmake everything
In my defence I did follow the instructions on the website which just said
make. I guess they're not very helpful to a newbie like me.
Thanks for the help
