[freetds] freetds 0.6.4 breaks compatibility

Hi all

After upgrading from freetds 0.6.3 to 0.6.4 applications using libsybdb and 
compiled against 0.6.3 stopped working. The problem is that this release have 
broken binary compatibility by replacing the dbopen() function by a macro and 
therefore dbopen isn't available any more in the library.

I consider this a serious issue and would like to suggest using one line 
functions calling the real function instead of using #defines.
