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.
