I've tried exactly as you said, and when I `make test' I get:
DBlib.o(.text+0x50a3): undefined reference to `dbsqlsend'
In function `XS_Sybase__DBlib_dbpoll':
DBlib.o(.text+0x539d): undefined reference to `dbpoll'
make: *** [perl] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/mnt/devel/sybperl-2.09_05'
make: *** [perl] Error 2
Did you have the same problem?
