It looks like you can now use Pervasive SQL via ODBC or Jython/JDBC. I
don't see a C, C++ or Ada interface on their homepage, however. Only JDBC
and ADO/OLEDB. Without seening a C/C++ (or Ada, or Fortran ;-) interface,
the complexity of this task cannot be evaluated.

You can expect basic functionality within days, but a fully compliant and
stable DB-API interface takes months to build. With being able to commit to
this task full-time, you might achieve this goal faster.

If someone paid me to do it , it might be fun enough ;-)
 Iff it is possible, for C/C++, I only see a BTrieve API, no SQL API.
But then, it's only 5 minutes since I first heard about this product ...
