I am using unixODBC source distribution which is open source and available in gzipped tar file. You need to just Uncompress it and then put on the resultant file. The option of untar the file is
Code:
tar -xvf unixODBC-2.2.12.tar
Then change the file to resultant directory and run as:
Code:
./configure --help
which will display list all the options configure.

I will tell you some methods of installing an ODBC driver under unixODBC :
# you need to write a program which links with libodbcinst.so and calls SQLInstallDriver.
# OR You should create an ODBC driver template file and run odbcinst by these command:
Code:
    odbcinst -f template_file -d -i
