[freetds] trailing spaces

I have found several posts that talk about trailing spaces in output from
the freetds driver. I am connecting to a sybase database with php and from
what I read, the reason I am getting spaces after the data I want is
because the column is a CHAR column and the size of the data is < the size
of the column.
Some things I have read suggest changing the DB structure. That is not an
option. Some have suggested changing the php code, but I have been
developing with the Sybase ODBC driver on a Windows system, which
automatically trimmed the data, and that would entail a lot of changed code
and checking for errors.
So, I would like to know if I can change the freetds in some way, either
configuration or recompiliation, so that it mimics the Sybase ODBC driver
and trims the data of spaces automatically?
Thank you in advance.
