OK, if I understand you, you've compiled sqsh by pointing SYBASE
correctly, and putzing with CFLAGS.  You want to link, too?  Some people! 

> So, actually which lib file the sqsh has a dependency upon? 

If you look in your freetds build directory, you'll see that that we only
build libct:

$ (cd build/src/ctlib/.libs/; ls lib*)
libct.a      libct.la     libct.lai    libct.so     libct.so.1  

But that's not your difficulty, yet (if you get a message about other
missing libraries, then you're up to re-linking by hand, not as hard as it
sounds).  At the moment, the linker isn't finding libct, and so can't
resolve gobs of references.  

Have a look in your sqsh/src/Makefile for something like this:

#  The following variables are configurable by the user.  Typically
#  these include things that GNU autoconf has a little trouble
#  figuring out for itself.

SYBASE_OCOS   = /usr/local/

The value of SYBASE_OCOS should be what's in $SYBASE.  Is that the case? 
If not, you can adjust it and have another go.  

You absolutely don't need and don't want to include or link to Sybase's OC

Take care not to put a space between -L and its argument.
