    First of all both driver and ODBC driver manager should be built 
correctly to support UNICODE on your system. Here are some lines from 
sqltypes.h (unixODBC 2.2.12):

 * Use this if you want to use the C/C++ portable definition of  a wide 
char, wchar_t
 *  Microsoft hardcoded a definition of  unsigned short which may not be 
compatible with
 *  your platform specific wide char definition.
#include <wchar.h>

    So, if you are building unixODBC with SQL_WCHART_CONVERT - you 
should specify the same option for psqlodbc.
If SQLWCHAR = wchar_t, then  sizeof(SQLWCHAR) = 4. If SQLWCHAR = 
unsigned short, then sizeof (SQLWCHAR) = 2. SQLWCHAR on Windows is 
always 2 bytes wide.
