Are you absolutely 100% sure that $SYBASE is correct and that the
interfaces file is readable by user 'nobody' (or whatever user your
CGI scripts run as)?

The interfaces file obviously can't be opened, and that's something
that has nothing to do with LD_LIBRARY_PATH (the script wouldn't even
start if you'd needed setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH...)
