Subject: sybperl installation problems.
Date: Jan 13 1999 2:24PM


I'm having a sybperl installation problem.  Here's the general info on the
system I'm installing on, as well as Openclient version, sybperl and perl

System: SGI Origin 200
OS: SGI Irix 6.4
PERL Version: 5.003
Sybperl Version: 2.09_05
OpenClient Version: 10.0.3

The problem I'm having is with the 'make test' section of the install.  I'm
pretty sure my CONFIG file is correct; 1000 for DBLIBVS, 100 for CTLIBVS,
the rest default.  'perl Makefile.PL' doesn't give me any errors at all.
The make works OK as well; several warnings about types, but it finishes
without error.  PWD is correct as well.  However, when I type 'make test',
it fails the first test with this message:

# make test
        PERL_DL_NONLAZY=1 /usr/sbin/perl -I.././blib/arch -I.././blib/lib
/share/lib/perl5/irix-n32/5.003 -I/usr/share/lib/perl5 -e 'use
Test::Harness qw(
&runtests $verbose); $verbose=0; runtests @ARGV;' t/*.t
t/bcp...............Can't load '.././blib/arch/auto/Sybase/DBlib/'
for m

*** Error code 2 (bu21)

What is odd is the error about not being able to find  My
SYBASE variable is set to /opt/sybase, and /opt/sybase does indeed exist.
Also, /opt/sybase/lib does indeed have in it.  I've verified
this many times to make sure I'm not going nuts, but it is indeed
there.  So I'm not sure where to go from here.  I hope this is enough
information;  thanks for any help you can give me.
