Copied dbivport.h from the latest DBI distribution into DBD::ODBC.
Add latest Devel::PPPort ppport.h to DBD::ODBC and followed all recommendations for changes to dbdimp.c.

Minor change to Makefile.PL to output env vars to help in debugging peoples build failures.
Added odbc_utf8_on attribute to dbh and sth handles to mark all strings coming from the database as utf8. This is for Aster (based on PostgreSQL) which returns all strings as UTF-8 encoded unicode. Thanks to Noel Burton-Krahn.
