The default version of MS-SQL 7 will not work with the Sybase Client
Libraries (which are used for DBD::Sybase and Sybase::CTlib). What
*will* work is the Sybase::DBlib module (part of sybperl).
Get sybperl 2.11, and add -DMSSQL to the EXTRA_DEFINES line in the
CONFIG file, and you should be on your way.
