Those are compiler warnings that you can safely ignore.

The mxodbc-licenses.zip file needs to be the (renamed) licenses.zip file
that we sent you with the license email.

Those files contain the licenses per CPU each in their own directory
named after the license key.

The recipe will look in that directory and raise an error if it cannot
find it.
