Hi Cory,

The problem is that perl stores the parameter that should be passed to  
the compiler when the interpreter is built/configured. So if your perl  
binary was built with Sun's cc compiler it will use that information  
to build any C language extension.

The standard answer to this question is to say: "use the same compiler  
as the one used to build your binary".
However, if you feel just a little bit adventurous (and if you are  
reasonably familiar with gcc) you could edit the DBD::Sybase Makefile  
before running make to adjust the various macros that are used  
(CFLAGS, etc) so that gcc (and the appropriate gcc compiler flags) is
