There is no direct support in freetds for changing/setting charset
or any other locale information from the ctlib library. However,
if you feel like recompiling your CT-Lib PHP module, you can add
the line 

     tds_set_charset(conn->tds_login, "???");

where conn is your CS_CONNECTION and ??? is the name of the charset
that you want the server to use. This may do what you want.
