errors or no output from most of the tools. I have been trying to cvs

OK - managed to login to CVS at last and download the latest development
A straight configure/make created tools that ran, but generated no output. I
re-did the configure with some suggested options (below) and it works!!! 
./configure --enable-sql --with-unixodbc=/usr/local
It seems these options are needed even though I am accessing the mdb file
directly off disk and not via odbc or SQL
Thanks to all who were just about to chip in with suggestions ;-)
