We haven't tried this configuration ourselves yet, but it should work,
provided libc++ is complete enough.

This looks like you are not linking to libodb-sqlite-*.dylib. You need
to build and link to this library if you are using SQLite.

ODB plugin doesn't really instantiate anything nor does it care about
which standard C++ library implementation you use to build your 
application. It is standard C++ in, standard C++ out. You should then
be able to compile the output C++ code with any reasonably conforming

Let us know how it goes.
