A couple of things:
1. TimB has stated that 5.004_xx won't be supported beyond DBI 1.20.
2. It's best to use DBD::Sybase 0.93 (or later) when building with OCS
3. I've not tested recent DBD::Sybase versions with perl < 5.005
4. My current development platform for DBD::Sybase (and sybperl) is
5.6.0/5.6.1 (linux and solaris).
So there is no *imperative* to go to 5.6.1 (rather than, say,
5.005_03, for example), but I would *definitely* upgrade from
