Uh, we forgot to add that to the cygwin README.
unixodbc is no official cygwin package yet, though it builds out
of the box. iODBC would be another option.

tar xfz libiodbc-3.52.5.tar.gz
cd libiodbc-3.52.5
  ./configure --disable-gui --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc
make check
make install

libwin32 builds with the MSVC6 odbc headers also, but we (Gerrit and me) 
wanted to link against an open and POSIX compliant lib.
Note: DBD::ODBC has some detection code to which odbc lib to link 
against. Microsoft ODBC, iodbc, unixodbc or any other.
