It sure looks like libodbcinst.so.1 wants to load /usr/local/freetds/lib/libtdsodbc.so.0.0.  

That's not the default location, although it's used by some RPMs.  If you're quite sure that "ls -l /usr/local/freetds/lib/libtdsodbc* is showing you a complete set of executable files, then I guess I'd wonder about the version of ld.so.1 or something like that.  

For the record, here're mine:

$ ls -l /usr/local/lib/libtdsodbc* |cut -b'-11,53-'
-rw-r--r-- /usr/local/lib/libtdsodbc.a
-rwxr-xr-x /usr/local/lib/libtdsodbc.la
lrwxr-xr-x /usr/local/lib/libtdsodbc.so -> libtdsodbc.so.0.0
lrwxr-xr-x /usr/local/lib/libtdsodbc.so.0 -> libtdsodbc.so.0.0
-rwxr-xr-x /usr/local/lib/libtdsodbc.so.0.0
