What makes these patches obsolete?

Good question. I removed the patches because I could not understand what there purpose was in FreeTDS release 0.64. I was able to successfully build and test FreeTDS 0.64 without the patches. I originally expected the build without the patches to fail as the patches changed linker options. Instead, the build was successful.

My tests were not exhaustive as I do not have access to any Sybase databases.

I added the mssql variant. Thanks! I am a little worried about removing the patches without knowing for sure they won't be needed so I left them for now since no one has reported trouble yet.
