[freetds] freeTDS configure works but make doesn't

Problem solved.

I thought for sure I had configured with LIB path settings, but this is what was needed.  I used both LIBPATH and LD_LIBRARY_PATH.  I think AIX uses LIBPATH

export OBJECT_MODE=64
export CFLAGS=-maix64 
export LIBPATH=/usr/local/lib
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib
./configure --prefix=/usr/local --with-unixodbc=/usr/local --with-tdsver=8.0 --enable-msdblib 2>&1 | tee configure.log

After that the make worked.

fisql uses db-lib, and these are db-lib symbols.  You are correctly linking to libsybdb; that's what "-lsybdb" does.  However, the linker is not finding that library, or (unlikely) the library it does find doesn't export those symbols.  

I would use the AIX equivalent of nm(1) to examine ../../dblib/.libs/libsybdb.a (if that's what it's called) to make sure e.g. dbinit is defined as a public symbol.  Potentially there's a 32-bit version in /usr/local/lib that's hiding the 64-bit version in your build tree.  That would explain why you can build the 32-bit version.  

I'm not sure why -L/usr/local/lib appears first among the -L options.
ISTM it shouldn't be there at all, because fisql should be linked to the library in the build tree that will be installed when fisql is installed.  

HTH.
