Certain use cases such as connecting to Azure databases require SSL support in FreeTDS.
The provided ebuild adds `ssl` USE flag which enables OpenSSL support for FreeTDS.
Note that the resulting binary cannot be distributed due to license incompatibility.
I could not get FreeTDS 0.91 to compile with GnuTLS so GnuTLS support is yet to
I needed this change, as well. Would be good to have it in the main tree (maybe slip in update to 0.95, as well).
are you willing to proxy maintain this package?
Not I. Like Gentoo devs, I haven't sufficient time. Anyway, I've recently taken a position with a new employer and hope to never care about MSSQL again. :)

dev-db/freetds: new version 1.00.13.
This new version fixes some bugs and adds a few new features. At some
point, the upstream project added support for compiling with
-Werror=format-security, so that takes care of our bug 521270.
The ebuild now has support for GnuTLS, OpenSSL/LibreSSL (bug 490554),
and iconv. These were all present upstream, but missing from the
ebuild until now. It also adds a runtime dependency on bind-tools,
which is used by the "osql" script (bug 487176).
