What exactly do you mean?
A big part of the MYSQL source is known to compile under DOS
(at least the mysys, strings, debug, isam and myisam libraries should
compile without any big problems)

You can of course also download an older myodbc distribution; These
includes the full copy source for the mysqlclient.lib library as a
Which MySQL source distribution did you use? If you used the windows
source, you should only need to compile the files according to the
libmysql/libmySQL.mak makefile, which shouldn't a very big problem.
