DBI::FreeTDS is a separate implementation done by Craig.  It does not use
or require the freetds libraries. I have no idea if Craig is still working
on it or not... There is also Michael Pepplers DBD::Sybase which I have
personally used and it works well (within the bounds of what freetds
supports).  You'll need at least version 0.47 of freetds and version 0.19
and up of DBD::Sybase should work.
