Which version of sybperl do you have, exactly?

This is not an error that I have seen before. Are you using the
ActiveState build of perl?
I suspect that you need to do something like this in the DBlib.xs and
#define OLD_SCOPE scope
#define scope OLD_SCOPE
although I don't garantee that this will work...
