It is supported (I used it yesterday...) I think that K. Ganapathy may
be on the right track: if you are running sybperl 2.0x (x < 3) then
DBlibrary is left in 4.6.1 mode, and numeric/decimal/identity datatypes
are not supported.

In 2.03 dbsetversion() is called during initialization if System 10
libs are available.
