Make sure you have the C development environment installed on your
machine. You need cc or gcc; you also need make. Without those, you

Make sure you have the Informix Client SDK installed, so you can
compile ESQL/C programs. You should ideally ensure it works before
trying to build dostats - but if you're a newbie you probably don't
have a convenient simple test program to ensure that CSDK (ESQL/C)
Download the source from the IIUG web site -- utils2_ak.gz.
Unpack the source in a new, empty directory. It is a gzipped shell
archive, so you do 'gzip -cd utils2_ak.gz | sh' (or you can use ksh or
bash - I doubt if C shell will work).
Check the contents of Makefile.
Run: make dostats
Copy dostats to a convenient bin directory on your PATH. Maybe
install drive_dostats too.
