OK got it!

Starting log file for FreeTDS 0.62.dev.20030513
        on 2003-05-13 11:02:26 with debug level 99.
iconv to convert client-side data to the "ISO-8859-7" character set
11:02:26.244776 tds_iconv_info_init: client charset name "ISO-8859-7"

As you can see the difference is that the charset is unrecognized for
some reason.

#iconv -l |grep 8859-*7

No its not RH8 it's RH9 (even worse).
#cat /etc/sysconfig/i18n

So yes it does support utf8 but I'm not using utf8. If change
LANG="en_US.UTF-8" tsql does fire up as a UTF-8 client.

Ok finally got it to work but I defined codepoint and name as char (512)
cause I couldn't get the string to work.

[root at atlas iconv]# hexdump -C iso-8859-7.bin |grep -i f0
000000a0  e6 e7 e8 e9 ea eb ec ed  ee ef f0 f1 f2 f3 f4 f5
|ζηθικλμνξοπρςστυ|       <---- correctly displayed greek characters
[root at atlas iconv]# printf "%x\n" $(expr 2 \* `printf "%d\n" 0xaa`)
[root at atlas iconv]# iconv -f iso-8859-7 -t UCS-2LE iso-8859-7.bin \
> |hexdump  |grep -i 03C0
0000150 03be 03bf 03c0 03c1 03c2 03c3 03c4 03c5

As far as I can see I get exactly the same results as you do.
