There's some tiny bit missing in the Cygwin README, which will be in the 
next README.

If you want to build from source, this build links against the unixodbc 
package, the default Win32::ODBC against the Microsoft ODBC headers and 
libs. There's no difference at run-time though.

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.
