I did an install of DBD::Sybase and Sybperl on Sun Solaris 2.8 with 
freeTDS 0.63. After the installation, I got the following error

/usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7/sun4-solaris/auto>perl -MDBD::Sybase 
Can't locate loadable object for module DBD::Sybase in @INC (@INC 
contains: /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.7/sun4-solaris 
/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.7 /usr/l0
Compilation failed in require.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.

-MSybase::DBlib -e0
Can't locate loadable object for module Sybase::DBlib in @INC (@INC 
contains: /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.7/sun4-solaris 
/usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.7 /usr0
Compilation failed in require.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted.

I went to the perl directory and cannot find Sybase.so and DBlib.so

I must have done something wrong with the installation, but just don't 
know what. Can someone give me a hand in solving this.
