If you can get the snapshot source, no patch is needed.
MULTIBYTE stuff is #ifdef'd and you can get the multibyte
version of the dll by typing
  nmake /f win32.mak cfg=MultibyteRelease

If you are to use BIG5 as the client encoding, you have
to add the following command to the *Connect Settings*
DataSource option.
  set client_encoding to 'BIG5'
