[freetds] DBD::ODBC + FreeDTS fails

I am trying to use dbi::ODBC instead of dbi::Sybase in Perl scripts (I
use FreeTDS as a driver to connect to an MS-SQL Server 2000). The aim is
to be able to use placeholders (ex. "SELECT * FROM PERSONS WHERE NAME =
? AND ACTIVE = 1") as it fails when trying to prepare statements with
dbi::Sybase, displaying a segmentation fault. (I already wrote about
this a few days/weeks ago).
I installed unixODBC, set up odbc.ini, and performed a few successfull
requests using isql to get connected to the database I plan to use with
my Perl scripts.
Now, I plan to install DBD::ODBC. I exported DBI_DSN ('dbi:ODBC:<dsn>'),
DBI_USER ('sa'), DBI_PASS ('****'), ODBCHOME ('/var'), ran successfully
`perl Makefile.PL`, `make` but did not pass `make test`. The tests fails
when running t/20SqlServer with the following error :
DBD::ODBC::st execute failed: (DBD: st_execute/SQLExecute err=-1) at
t/20SqlServer.t line 210.
I ignored the problem and installed anyway in order to see if it could
work with my perl script. But it also fails with the error `(DBD:
st_prepare/SQLPrepare err=-1)`. I try to run a simple select query.
Any idea ?
