I don't know AIX at all. Why you have to extract static library?? Don't
AIX support dynamic libraries ??

Well, the location of odbcinst.ini and odbc.ini are not FreeTDS
dependent but DM (unixODBC, iODBC or whatever) dependent. If you use
unixOBDC you can use "odbcinst -i" to discover odbc*.ini locations, if
you use iODBC you can use iodbc-config.
