Hi --

I am brand new to this list, as I am brand new to SybPerl, and like all 
newbies, I have run into some problems getting it working. 

I am running Redhat 7.3, Perl 5.8.0 and Sybase Open Client 11.1.1. Perl and 
Sybase are working fine (I can run a "Hello World" script and run command 
line queries using isql). However, SybPerl is being a little difficult. I am 
getting errors on the make test (pasted below), and the "use Sybase::CTlib" 
line in my script is erroring with a segmentation fault. 

I have recompiled Perl using the normal Configuration and then recompiled 
SybPerl only to receive those errors. I then deleted the config.sh and 
Policy.sh and recompiled Perl with the Michael's recommended ./Configure, 
which returned an error that we have a "BIG problem" in that /usr/bin/ld: 
cannot find -lposix. So I then tried Michaels recommended ./Configure without 
the -lposix flag, and perl installed, but the make test on sybperl still 
gives the error below.

Can anyone help?

Thanks!

~James
