What this means is that neither libsybdb.so, nor libcs.so are linked
into DBlib.so, respectively Sybase.so.

So I have a feeling that the installation actually did not work
correctly.

First, try to do this:

ldd /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.1/i586-linux/auto/Sybase/DBlib/DBlib.so

This should display something like this:

troll (8:11AM):92 > ldd /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0/i386-linux/auto/Sybase/DBlib/DBlib.so 
	libsybdb.so => /opt/sybase-12.5/OCS/lib/libsybdb.so (0x40023000)
	libm.so.6 => /lib/libm.so.6 (0x400d9000)
	libc.so.6 => /lib/libc.so.6 (0x400fb000)
	/lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x80000000)

If libsybdb.so isn't listed, then your build did not work, and you
should try to reinstall.
