I'm not sure what compiler was used for my perl executable. I downloaded a
precompiled binary for HPUX 10.20 at the HP-UX Porting and Archive Centre:

The box with the make issues probably doesn't have anything other than the
k&r compiler on it, so it's very possible that that is part of the problem.

It is an 11.x server... the $SYBASE/lib directory exists, but
$SYBASE/include is absent. Is there a problem with just copying the
$SYBASE/include directory over from another server?
