I tried, but I could not get it to work. It builds fine and installs a
libmaodbc.so into /usr/local/lib. I have then added a driver referencing
it into /etc/odbcinst.ini and refer to that in /etc/odbc.ini, but it
fails with

[01000][unixODBC][Driver Manager]Can't open lib 'libmaodbc.so' : file
not found
[ISQL]ERROR: Could not SQLConnect

Interestingly it does find the lib (according to strace) and using fully
qualified paths in odbcinst.ini or moving the lib around did not help
either. strace does not show any more file accesses.

In the meantime I found out that i.e. Fedora is running mysql-connector
still (although a much newer version, 5.3.4) and is carrying a patch for
Of course that does not apply at all to 5.1.10.

I have upgraded #835166 to grave since it is just plainly broken.
