How to set up ODBC for Oracle on Solaris with unixODBC driver manager

I am trying to follow the metalink doc to set up ODBC connections:,p14_docid,p14_show_header,p14_show_help,p14_black_frame,p14_font:NOT,363899.1,1,0,1,helvetica

But I got the following error:

oracle@ors2di # ./doit
make: Fatal error in reader: /opt/app/oracle/product/10.2.0/db_1/odbc/lib/, line 1422: Unexpected end of line seen
./doit: ./odbcsel1: not found

To be able to successfully create a two tier connection to a 64-bit Oracle on a 64-bit Solaris machine, include Oracle 32-bit libraries in the PATH.

The binaries are often located in the lib32 directory. For example:
This path should be included in the LD_LIBRARY_PATH to make the two tier connection work in a 64-bit environment.

Also, verify the path is placed before the paths to other Oracle libraries.
