Created attachment 362666 [details]

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
be done.

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).
Comment 2 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2016-05-21 15:49:08 UTC
are you willing to proxy maintain this package?
Comment 3 Mike Nerone 2016-05-28 07:11:27 UTC
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).
