Problem with Python module

I want to connect to a remote MS SQL Server 2000 database through
my Fedora Core 2 machine via Python scripts. I have successfully
installed freetds & unixODBC and can now connect to the desired DB
through tsql(freetds) & isql(unixODBC). I installed mxODBC (RPM &
source) to be able to connect to the DB via Python scripts without any

The code(db3.py) under test is as follows:

import mx.ODBC.unixODB C


conn=mx.ODBC.un ixODBC.Connect (dsn, "maneesh_singh" , "newuser")

print "Content-Type: text/plain"

cursorhandle=co nn.cursor()

print "MySQL Databse via mxODBC....\n"
cursorhandle.ex ecute("select * from tb_mis_team")

for i in cursorhandle.fe tchall():
print i

print cursorhandle.fe tchall()

for i in cursorhandle.fe tchall():
print i

The output is as follows:
[root@ps0778 cgi-bin]# python db3.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "db3.py", line 4, in ?
import mx.ODBC.unixODB C
File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/mx/ODBC/unixODBC/__init__.py",
line 8, in ?
from mxODBC import *
ImportError: libiodbcinst.so .2: cannot open shared object file: No
such file or directory

Additional info:
[root@ps0778 unixODBC]# pwd
[root@ps0778 unixODBC]# ldd ./mxODBC.so
linux-gate.so.1 => (0x0070b000)
libodbc.so.1 => /usr/lib/libodbc.so.1 (0x00b26000)
libpthread.so.0 => /lib/tls/libpthread.so.0 (0x007ca000)
libc.so.6 => /lib/tls/libc.so.6 (0x00eaa000)
libiodbcinst.so .2 => not found
libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x006b2000)
/lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x0089d000)

I want to use unixODBC and not iODBC, why is mxODBC looking for
iODBC's libraray? I had earlier tried to install iODBC,
unsuccessfully, hence shifted over to unixODBC. The missing iODBC
library exist in /usr/local/lib folder. Do I need to link the iODBC
library to mxODBC during installation? How? Configure setup.in in the
source setup?
