well, that is where back-sql should go ;)

looking through information you provided, I can see only the following:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH is a path for searching dynamic libraries (.so), for .a use
LIBS or whatever variable your linker expects (see FAQs on building slapd)

the problem seems to be rather simple - something with build environment.
if you still have no luck - try consulting a small how-to-install by Emile
Heitor, which I forwarded to the list not so long ago. along with
step-by-step instructions, it suggests another ODBC package, which is better
IMHO anyway :)
