While trying to connect to a db w/ SQL_ASCII encoding, from tcl I get:
   "ERROR:  Conversion between UNICODE and SQL_ASCII is not supported"
this happens after an upgrade from 7.1 to 7.2 on a debian woody, connecting
   to a database on a RedHat 7.1 w/ postgreSQL 7.1.

What I cannot understand is that while 

1. trying to connect to other db (SQL_ASCII encoding) on my box (debian)
   everithing works (so I would think "my libpgtcl *can* connect to
   SQL_ASCII db),

2. if I dump the db and reload it w/ UNICODE encoding I can connect to it

3. from psql I can connect to RedHat SQL_ASCII db from debian woody and SHOW

How can I force libpgtcl to get SQL_ASCII encoding or be sensitive to
PGCLIENTENCODING environment variable? or how else should I solve the

Thanks in advance

[ I don't know how to get compile option, I couldn't find an option to look
