PHP will work with multiple databases, as long as you don't try to use any
of the uodbc based flavors together (Solid, Empress ,iODBC, unixODBC,
Easysoft OOB, OpenLink, Adabas D, Velocis, DBMaker, SAP DB and IBM DB2).

If you need to connect to multiple ODBC databases, use a driver manager such
as iODBC or unixODBC and the appropriate ODBC driver.

As oulined above, instead of using "--with-ibm-db2" and "--with-iodbc" just
use "--with-iodbc" and create a DSN for your DB2 server with iodbc.
