Much thanks for getting back to me so quickly.  I seem to have gotten
sybperl to build ... I believe the trick was to copy libsybtcl.a to

What does my interfaces file need to look like to connect to Microsoft SQL
Server?  It seems I need to specify a port, but I don't know what port the
SQL server uses .. I watched a transaction between the SQL server and a
Microsoft SQL client over tcpdump and it seems to use an astandard,
fluctuating port number.

What function within sybperl's API can I specify a datasource name?  

Thanks for your help.  I'm thinking once I get everything connected and
functions flowing, I'll write a little HOWTO.
