oh, I see. That’s indeed interesting!

Yep, stuff like this seems to happen not only for MacPorts packagers. :-)

Looks like it makes sense to inspect what OpenSUSE distributes in those two packages and then simply modify libiodbc on MacPorts accordingly, i.e. split off a libiodbc-admin subport, perhaps.
