Good day, Wes..................I spent about an hour-and-a-half researching the SDE library C++ version and available binaries. I found one implementation from an organization called "CRAN" which is an SDE package, and I downloaded the binaries and the source code. Unfortunately, their source code does not bear much resemblance to the SDE library found at the link atop of this page. I really did not find much else except for references to SDE within the GDAL package, also references to OSGeo4W. It looks like GDAL might not be supporting this anymore............not totally sure about that. I have the OSGeo4W on one of my machines and took a look, but did not see SDE listed.
At this time I only have the windows binaries from the CRAN project, and as noted above, the code is quite different from the project noted here: http://people.sc.fsu.edu/~jburkardt/cpp_src/sde/sde.html. If you'd like me to pursue this further, please do let me know.
