Are you sure have rights to create files in C:\?  No message is
produced if the log file cannot be opened.  Probably perror(3) should
be called in that case.  

I do not think you need to escape the backslash, because FreeTDS
interprets it literally.  You could try c:/freetds.log, but I doubt
that will change anything.  You might also try substituting whatever
value is in your environment for TEMP.
