Just to clarify, these RPMs are not provided by Red Hat, but by Dag Wieers
(who packages a bunch of 3rd party stuff). For some reason his SPEC has:

%define _includedir %{_prefix}/include/freetds


If the freetds project doesn't see any reason for /usr/include/freetds/,
it sounds like Dag is the one to ask about what's going on, especially 
since he lists freetds.org as the upstream provider.
