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'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.
