It's done at runtime.. In most cases the only dependency on the database 
is a single source file.

I found Gentoo had similar problems (with different packages) unless you 
modified the USE variable for each install, which was too much work for 
me...  eg. links, which is ideal for text mode, pulls in X11 if you have 
it in your USE variable.

I quite like debian.. it's just sometimes you have package maintainers 
who do bizarre things (if unixodbc should be dependent on any GUI it'd 
be QT since its admin interfaces uses it.. I really can't see why gnome 
is needed - especially for the -dev package which shouldn't have any 
dependencies at all..)

I'm not really sure how to...  I don't think there's a version check 
anywhere and the ODBC interface itself is pretty static.  Is there 
something specific that fails that I could check for?

There weren't many goodies... Avon was a baddie too (albeit a baddie on 
'our' side)..
