Ah well here we have a problem.
First wdb is pretty outdated, and that's what's really causing the

OK - what happens here is that the sybperl functions are imported into
the WDB_DatabaseInterface package, not into main, so

You may be able to go around this by
a) edit the file and remove all the &main' qualifyers.
b) do a require sybperl.pl in the "main" package before
calling this module/file.
