DBD::Sybase, FreeTDS, Solaris 2.7, Perl 5.6.1

Thanks for clarifying.
I successfully compiled DBD::Sybase 0.91 with 0.53pre1, and ran
my test scripts without any problems. That means it would
probably do what I need it to do.
'make check' only had one failure:
t0004.c: Test large (>512 bytes) queries
tds_process_result_tokens() returned TDS_FAIL for long query
I didn't touch etc/freetds.conf, and it looks to be using
the JDBC config (184.108.40.206).
