Thanks for the replies.  For some reason my emails have been taking a
couple days to go through on the mailing list.  I ended up commenting
out some of the ifdef statements to get it to compile:

In odbcapi.c:

                                 SQLROWSETSIZE *pcrow,
                                 SQLULEN *pcrow,
#endif /* WITH_UNIXODBC */

I changed to:

                                 SQLULEN *pcrow,

In odbcapi30.c

#if defined(_WIN64)
                        SQLLEN *NumericAttribute
#elif defined(WITH_UNIXODBC) || defined(WIN32)
                        SQLPOINTER NumericAttribute
                        SQLLEN *NumericAttribute

I changed to:

                        SQLLEN *NumericAttribute

And in odbcapi30w.c

#if defined(WITH_UNIXODBC) || (defined(WIN32) && ! defined(_WIN64))
        SQLPOINTER      pNumAttr
        SQLLEN          *pNumAttr

I changed to:

        SQLLEN          *pNumAttr

For some reason even though I have unixODBC installed it didn't like
those values it was defining.  I was able to setup a database link
through oracle and everything seems to be working properly.  Hopefully,
this won't cause any issues down the road.  I would assume anyone else
trying to compile on redhat 64-bit would have the same issues.

I never had any problems with it.
This is my log of a session where I installed 08.02.0500 on a 32-bit
RHEL4 machine:

(The first two packages are our own RPMs for PostgreSQL, you can use the
standard "libs" and "devel" packages)

# rpm -U adv-postgres-8.2.5-libs-1-1.i386.rpm
# rpm -U adv-postgres-8.2.5-devel-1-1.i386.rpm
# yum install unixODBC unixODBC-devel

Unpack and compile the software:
(Our packages install PostgreSQL into /magwien/postgres-8.2.5, so you
can just omit these settings with the standard RPMs)

$ cd /home/laurenz
$ export PATH=/magwien/postgres-8.2.5/bin:$PATH
$ tar -xzvf psqlodbc-08.02.0500.tar.gz
$ cd psqlodbc-08.02.0500
$ LDFLAGS=-Wl,-rpath,/magwien/postgres-8.2.5/lib ./configure
$ make


# cd /home/laurenz/psqlodbc-08.02.0500
# make install

You wrote that you encountered problems, but did not describe them.
