Special for you today, if ibiblio's not back online already:

I don't know what to make of that.  Does "iconv -l |grep 8859-*7" (that's
a lowercase -l, as in "--list") show anything?

You're kidding, right?  Are you on RH8?  Because that's a UTF-8 setup.

These and subsequent errors stem from not having your -I set up to find
your C++ header files.  You could adjust according to:

	$ find /usr/include -name string

or look in the same directory as the tarball for my copy of the .bin file.

The baffling thing atm is why iconv refuses to convert your client-side
data.  Or maybe it's us; the patch will show all.  This for sure: if tsql
won't process your query, there's no chance PHP will.  

Well, it's getting late here.  I think I'll turn in and see how you fared
in the (my) morning.
