 I tried the following code which you had given me but its give me
error, hence which makes me conclude that there are no GNU diff and
patch installed.The only option I have to is to manually  edit the
makefiles.Can you please let me know which are the lines I have to edit
in the make file?
As this code is free but  still is there any licence issue which I have
to take care of?

You may be suffering from restrictions to the list of symbols being
exported by libtds.  Try something like this:

$ make clean
$ for T in src/*/Makefile
        sed 's/-export-symbols-regex.*$//' $T \
		| diff -u $T - \
		| patch
$ make; make install

The "sed" command will remove the restriction, causing libtds to export
the names of the libc (and other) functions it uses.  I'm assuming you
have GNU diff and patch.  If not, you'll need to edit the Makefiles

[I would like to see this symbol list optimization removed, or applied
only to systems whose linker is known (by autoconf) to support it.  I
still don't understand why we're bothering with export-symbols-regex.]
