Two things.

The ActiveState version of Sybperl unfortunately has a bug (and it's
entirely my fault) A CONFIG value that should be optional was left
turned on in the 2.11 distribution, causing the location of the Sybase 
libs at build-time to be hard coded into the SYBASE env. variable in
the Sybase::DBlib and Sybase::CTlib .pm files. If you run the
ActiveState binaries of sybperl you need to fix this.

Alternatively you built sybperl yourself, and the CGI script does NOT
set the SYBASE env variable correctly before loading the Sybperl

YOu should also check the server error log (the http server, not
Sybase) to see what went wrong...
