The current version of osql does indeed parse ldd output if strings(1)
fails to find any candidates. I'm interested in improving the script to
deal with any environments to which I don't have access. It's a sort of
on-going experiment in whether or not a simple bourne shell script can
identify all odbc configuration problems.
