Both alternatives work.  If you use TDSDUMP, the variable must exist in
the environment of the process running the FreeTDS library.  I can imagine
that would be a little tricky with your setup.  

If you use the "dump file" property of freetds.conf, be sure you're using
an ODBC-Combined configuration.  (I assume your gateway relies on ODBC.) 
If you don't specify the server using the "Servername" connection
attribute, freetds.conf will not be consulted and the dump file will not
be generated.
