The quick and dirty fix is to make a separate directory tree that
has all the same files (ie interface /lib /locales /config /charsets
but with the correct ctlib.cfg file for sybperl, and then make sure
that $SYBASE points to this new place.
To make a more permanent fix I'd need to get some docs on the
differences between libtli and libtli_r, to see what needs to be
done to the code to make it work...
