Porters are using very different ways in managing the ODBC flavors (either iodbc or unixodbc) :

Here are examples :

databases/postgresql-odbc, databases/libodbc++, databases/mysql-connector-odbc : DRIVER_MANAGER
net/openldap23-server : WITH_ODBC_TYPE
lang/q : ODBC
databases/p5-DBD-ODBC : MYODBC
databases/freetds, lang/pike76, lang/pike72, databases/clip, databases/mysql2odbc : WITH_IODBC / WITH_UNIXODBC

It would be great if a common variable could be used... Maybe UNIXODBC and IODBC could be added in the KNOBS file ?
