We can build mxODBC against the DataDirect ODBC driver manager, but
this will be billed as paid support. We will also need access to the
driver package.

According to the eval license on their site, it is not permitted to use
the trial licenses for development, so we'll have to contact DataDirect
to see how we can proceed.
