We are going to try to install again. Are there any environment
variables that need set prior to running the "make" and "config"?

Answer to all questions is Yes. FreeTDS works on any 64-bit
architecture for which it compiles.
64-bit ODBC is a little tricky though. The ODBC 3.0 specification was
not 64-bit clean, meaning there were places where pointers were passed
as integers. AIUI this has all been resolved if you use the right
versions of everything, especially of the Driver Manager.
