Hi Jay,

did you see Nathan Harper's posting "RE: More Problems installing Sybperl
under Linux" (14 Oct):

Otherwise check your ld-version. There seem to be problems with older
versions than
	GNU ld version 2.8.1 (with BFD 2.8.1)
	  Supported emulations:
	   elf_i386
	   i386linux

Finaly, there can be a conflict between Sybase's client libraries and other
static linked perl modules. Be shure to use no other static linked perl
modules.
