[freetds] FreeTDS not finding freetds.conf

TDSDUMP and TDSDUMPCONFIG still weren't telling me where the search for
freetds.conf was taking place, so I tried the following, as suggested.
testuser at localhost:~$ strings /usr/lib/libtds.a |grep freetds.conf
%L ...Error getting ~/.freetds.conf. Trying %s.
It looks like it's looking for the file in the correct location, but it
doesn't seem to actually read the file and interpret it.
Either way, I took the suggestion of manually upgrading my version to the
latest stable version. I tried it out after installing it, and it worked
I guess that the problem now is that the version of FreeTDS in Debian's
package tree, even after I had it updated, is really outdated. I guess
someone could look into packaging a newer version if they really wanted to.
Anyway, thanks for your help!
