Installed from sources or from packages? If you install from sources you must make sure that the 
ODBC parts, dev stuff as well, must be installed. When you add something to your system, you 
also need to run ./configure again. Then try "make menuselect" to check your configuration. If 
you cannot select an item, there are usually hints on what the resource depends.
