Great :-) What database are you interfacing to ? If you can, you
should link against the ODBC manager if available. This gives you
more flexibility later on and would also make the interface useable
with other ODBC software for Macs.

If you need any help, feel free to ask me. Instructions for
creating a new subpackage are included in the mxODBC docs; it's
basically very simple: you just create a new subdir, then
copy everything from the mxODBC subdir into the new dir and
start editing the files.
