Wine's odbc32.dll depends on, which is provided by the unixodbc package. Applications that use odbc32.dll will not work on Wine unless unixodbc is installed.
This task depends upon

Note that unixodbc is currently pulled in transitively via the libldap opt-dependency.

Although libldap should really be removed - see - which will ultimately break Wine's odbc.

This task is more important now because libldap is no longer listed as a required or optional dependency of the wine package, see

It would also be nice to promote lib32-unixodbc from the AUR and list it as an optional dependency too. Wine still requires the 32-bit version of the library when running 32-bit Windows applications.
