The source code will compile on Linux (you will need to use gcc). It is
mentioned on the page.  The source release comes with a README.linux
file that you should look at.

I got that when I tried to use Cold Fusion on Win95.  It couldn't
configure data sources through its own thing.  It said to configure the
data source manually through the 32 bit odbc administrator.  I'm not
sure what it is looking for or if its just because Postgres isn't
supported in that regard.  I would be curious if the MySQL driver could
do it?

I didn't see anything obviously wrong in the driver and I didn't have a
chance to do any in-depth debugging.
