If you wish to use the 64-bit Sybase Client library, then you must use a
C compiler that can generate 64-bit code, and use (or build) a perl
binary in 64-bit mode as well.
In a lot of cases it is easier to install the 32 bit Sybase libraries
(they should be included in your 64 bit package) as there is usually no
need for the large address space in your perl scripts.
