I am attempting to get GRASS 5.7 to run on my Fedora machine. I loaded 
the binary release and it is have some problems finding certain 
libraries...what's new. Anyhow,  Hamish has graciously provided me with 
a list of required packages (for RH 9) and I have managed to track down 
most of them. But I've had some trouble finding the postgresql-odbc 
package. I am confused, because I have been able to track down  
and postgresql-odbc-7.1-1..LS1.i386.rpm. However, I get the impression 
from the PostgreSQL mirror sites that the official ODBC driver is 
psqlodbc-07.03.0200.  What should I use? Does it matter?
