What's in CVS compiles, if you have the right autotools.  

Special for you today, Richard, I just uploaded a new freetds-current.tgz
snapshot.  I think you will find that it builds and installs correctly.
Whether or not it runs well is another question, given the aggressive
changes we're making.  I agree with Frediano that things will settle down

If you want the last quasi-stable snapshot, use 

That includes dbmorecmds, and should compile and work normally.  

The most helpful thing you could do would be to write a simple dbmorecmds.c
for the dblib/unittest directory.  Even if it fails, you'll save me the work
of writing the test and probably provoke me into fixing whatever's wrong.
