You're right that a Sybase install is somewhat expected.

You can download the freetds libraries and get most functionality. Plus, the freetds libraries are built with MS-SQL access in mind. Then you can install DBD::Sybase and you should be up and running (with some setup, of course).

Check out 

Good luck,
