I would suggest standardizing on DBD::Sybase. I've used all three,
Sybase::CTlib is certainly a fine library, but DBI is nowadays the
standard Perl way to connect to databases so you will not have a new
API to learn if you start using a different server or driver.
(To connect to an MSSQL server I use DBD::Sybase on Linux and
DBD::ODBC on Windows, but because DBI presents a uniform interface
for both drivers, the same code can run on both platforms.)
