Could you post perl -V output for a system that works, and one that 
doesn't ?

RE: Sybase upgrade kills DBD 1.04 installation

Rebuild with new open client still fails.  We tried this first, but "make 
test" fails with the same message for multiple DBD::Sybase versions.
sybase/dba/scripts> ldd 
/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.3/sun4-solaris/auto/DBD/Sybase/ =>      /usr/local/sybase/OCS-12_5/lib/ =>      /usr/local/sybase/OCS-12_5/lib/ =>     /usr/local/sybase/OCS-12_5/lib/ =>    /usr/local/sybase/OCS-12_5/lib/ =>    /usr/local/sybase/OCS-12_5/lib/ =>    /lib/ =>     /lib/ =>     /lib/ =>        /lib/ =>   /lib/ =>    /lib/
sybase/dba/scripts> cat ~/interfaces
        master tcp ether drhost 4400
        query tcp ether drhost 4400
To reiterate, this works fine on other servers with the same OS, ESD, DBI, 
and DBD.  The only differences that show up in truss pertain to the 
platform, perl version, and maybe LD_LIBRARY_PATH (though no differences 
germane to what appears in truss output).  The ESD was applied consistent 
with the previous two installations.  This suggests either the perl build, 
or platform specific issues.

There could be various issues. 

First - have you rebuilt DBD::Sybase with the new OpenClient? 

Second - if you haven't rebuilt - is the file linked to (you can use ldd to find that out). 

Third - what is the format of the interfaces file entry for the connection 
that fails ? Is it a tli format, or a standard hostname/port ?
