From the Administrator Manual (doc/AdministratorManual/index.html):

The location of the system config files can be changed by setting the ODBCSYSINI environment variable at run-time.

So this should work:

ODBCSYSINI=$HOME isql ...

Or add the line

export ODBCSYSINI=$HOME

to your .bash_profile

Note the the odbc.ini file will be looked for in your home directory also.
