I honestly don't know if DBD::Sybase 0.20 (which is the official version
that Sybase.pm 1.20 is part of) will build correctly with 12.5. One
thing is certain - it won't find the OpenClient libraries as these have
moved in 12.5 from $SYBASE/lib to $SYBASE/$SYBASE_OCS/lib, so you'll
have to mess around with the Makefiles a bit.
Personally I'd suggest you use this opportunity to upgrade, and to
upgrade DBI as well, because there have been a lot of bugs fixed in the
last 4 years...
