The ODBC spec is incomplete for 64-bit architectures. I've submitted
some patches to unixODBC to try to improve this state of affairs, but I
don't recall if they are now enabled by default in the latest version,
or if unixODBC still conforms to the (broken) letter of the spec.
Debian, at least, ships unixODBC with this code enabled.
