Description of problem:

FreeTDS (http://www.freetds.org) is a free implementation of the TDS (Tabular
DataStream) protocol used by for example MS SQL Server. Including these
libraries would enable building of the php-mssql module to gain access to MS SQL
servers from within PHP.

I have here a setup with freetds 0.61 and php 4.3.0 running quite nicely and
stable, perhaps that would be of interest for more people than just me.

Closing bugs on older, no longer maintained, releases. Apologies for
any lack of response.

This is probably better suited to Fedora Extras:
