Hi there,

there should be _informixdb.ec which has to be prepprocessed by esql - a 
tool supplied with the informix sdk on your machine. 
Locate esql and your informix libraries. 
run:   esql -e -G  -thread  -libs _informixdb.ec  to get a list 
of the libraries and potientially object files which has to be linked 
to your _informixdb module. 
Be aware, that on some systems the informix sdk is supplied as 
32 bit and/or 64 bit version. 
Instead of using the Makefile I compiled informixdb manually (I didn't 
patched the makefile). I use a patch to _informixdb.ec to get rid of 
the most common pitfalls (DATE problem, ignore warnings instead treat 
them as errors).
Send me a private email in the case of interest.

cmkl
