This package does not come with a test suite.

Now, as the root user:

make install

Command Explanations

--with-iodbc-inidir=/etc/iodbc: libiodbc will install configuration files in this directory.

--includedir=/usr/include/iodbc: This installs the interface headers to a private directory to avoid a conflict with headers installed by unixODBC.

--disable-libodbc: This prevents the installation of the libodbc.so symbolic link to avoid a conflict with unixODBC.

--disable-static: This switch prevents installation of static versions of the libraries.
