Umm, We can't know in which mode the package (rpm) of unixODBC is built and released.
Supposing it defines as sqltypes.h of Debian compulsorily, it will be used also for our 
Then, that to which Debian is then supplied is clear. However, unixODBC in which a 
is not found does not understand whether it is the 64-bit mode.

I think that the supplier of unixODBC should have the responsibility. it will be clear if 
by "odbc_config --cflags". Then, Is BUILD_REAL_64_BIT_MODE of a definition in some
document? and, How does a user use?

Therefore, I think that supply of the present psqlODBC is the best.
