[freetds] libtdsocdbc.so

I have already compiled and installed unixODBC. I didn't quite
what you mean by:

and also install development files (-dev or -devel package usually)

Is this another package that I download from somewhere or is it already
in unixODBC?

I would say yes :)

isql.h/isqlext.h or sql.h/sqlext.h are DM (DriverManager) files. You
have to choose which DM you want to use (iODBC or unixODBC in Linux,
Ubuntu and RedHat use unixODBC) install it and also install development
files (-dev or -devel package usually), than you can compile FreeTDS (it
detect automatically which DM to use and compile it).
More informations on our UserGuide, as usual.
