I had terrible problems getting freeTDS and ODBC to run on FeeeBSD, but I
have finally cracked it.

unixODBC and freetds must be compiled WITHOUT THREADING, otherwise the
connect crashes in tds/login.c.

I got freetds working by compiling without threading, but I didn't think of
unixODBC.  As soon as I rebuilt that, it all worked.

Yippee, I can use Perl, and PHP can wait a while.
