Subject: ODBC and x64

After using Erlang like crazy in my free time the last couple of weeks I tried to hook up a database and find that the odbcserver is not present! Looking at the config.log it appears that configuration is failing as libodbc32 cannot be found. I am using Suse 10.2 Linux on an x64 system and have both 32 and 64 bit ODBC libraries installed (in /usr/lib/libodbc.so and /usr/lib64/libodbc.so). A simple softlink from /usr/lib64/libodbc32.so to /usr/lib/libodbc.so does not help. How do I get Erlang working? Or am I completely hosed? If so, is there an alternative way to connect to a SQL database (MySQL or Postgres - preferably the latter). I'm desperate enough to compile as 32 bit if that would help (I have 4GB RAM so I guess it would be OK?) - how would I do that? Thanks, Andrew PS Bundling the config.log for odbc. PPS Typically when installing a program configure prints a summary saying what sub-components will not be used. It would have been nice to know earlier about this problem. Perhaps the Erlang configure could do this too?
