databases/mbdtools + unixODBC

For whatever reason, FreeBSD's ports/mdbtools isn't linking (or even
offering to link) against unixODBC or iODBC.
I was browsing the list archives and someone hinted that v0.5 is "several
years" old, but thanks to sf.net's anti-spam measures on list archives, I
don't have that contact's e-mail.
Anyway, the port lacks a maintainer and if there hasn't been an official
release in that period, that may explain a great many things.
Anyway, It's hard to believe I'm the first person to try
php->apache->unixODBC->mdbtools(libmdbodbc)->access database on FreeBSD.
Looking into this now. I'll open a send-pr(1) as well.
