Thanks Michael,

meanwhile I have found a workaround by using DBD::ODBC and using an 
appropriate ODBC Data source name in the connection string.

I have indeed already tried to change the  PATH as suggested: however 
that was before script execution time but not before module 
build/installation time. I'll keep trying  a little  bit. Thanks again,
