Hello again!

I managed to compile and install informixdb module manually for py221.
However, when I import it in python2, it gives following error:
ImportError: Cannot locate C core module for informix db interface.

If I try import _informixdb, it gives following error:
ImportError: /opt/informix/lib/esql/ undefined symbol:

Please help. If we cannot make this work, we will have to go back to
1.5.2 - not very attractive alternative.

Thanks in advance.
