I have tried using the ports collection, downloading
mdbtools-0.5.tar.gz and mdbtools-0.6pre1.tar.gz, as well
as csv. I have not had any joy, they all wont compile
the odbc library. I am running 'FreeBSD bsdserver 5.2.1-
RELEASE FreeBSD 5.2.1-RELEASE #0'

These are the steps i take:

tar -zxvf mdbtools-0.5.tar.gz
cd mdbtools-0.5
./configure --enable-sql --with-unixodbc=/usr/local
(runs with no major errors)
make (starts to compile then I get this)

Making all in odbc
Error expanding embedded variable.
*** Error code 1

is there a patch for this? could someone please let me
know.

P.S. The only way I have been able to get this to work
was to install Redhat Linux. I dont want to use it.

Thanks in advance
